Tools for HIV Counseling for the Asia-Pacific
This package was created to meet a need to improve the quality of counseling as countries step up their drive to contain the AIDS epidemic. Prepared over two years by WHO and UNICEF with technical assistance from the Family Health International Asia-Paciﬁc Regional Ofﬁce, it is designed to equip trainers, counselors in training, and working counselors in the Asia Paciﬁc Region with essential skills and knowledge to deliver high-quality HIV testing and counseling services in a range of approaches and settings.
The HIV counselors handbook, trainer’s session plans, participatory learning activities, and HIV counselor toolkit reﬂect tests being used by health care providers. The provider-initiated testing and counseling approach is based on the UNAIDS/WHO Policy Statement on HIV Testing (2004), which was drafted after numerous rounds of consultations to deal with the low uptake of Voluntary and Conﬁdential Counseling and Testing worldwide.
