From the 12th – 16th of August 2019, Zoë-Life provided master training for 18 TB HIV Care and Department of Health (DoH) staff, including professional nurses, social workers and training coordinators.
Zoë-Life is an organisation focused on bringing health, wellness and personal development to children, youth and families. Zoë-Life was contracted by TB HIV Care to conduct implementer training on their KidzAlive programme.
The KidzAlive programme is endorsed by the NDoH and deals with child-friendly HTS, disclosure and adherence with children and their parents or caregivers.
The purpose of the training was to scale-up the implementation of the Kidzalive model in various districts of the Eastern Cape, where TB HIV Care provides support and technical assistance at facility level.
The five-day training covered three modules:
* Foundational skills in working with children and their caregivers
* A child-friendly HTS and disclosure model
* Adherence support
The Zoë-Life trainers were very impressed with the group of participants and provided the following feedback:
“This group were incredible; they participated from day one and were hungry for knowledge and skills.
We recommended that they are put forward as masters trainers of KidzAlive to scale-up within the districts of the Eastern Cape.”
