Announcement for a new training course in HIV Interventions for Key Populations and Programme Evaluation

The WHO Collaborating Centre for HIV Strategic Information based at the School of Medicine in Zagreb, Croatia (www.whohub-zagreb.org) will organize a training course in HIV Interventions for Key Populations and Programme Evaluation, which will be held from 26 – 30 June 2017. The course will be carried out in collaboration with University of California, San Francisco.

The aim of this course is to provide participants with practical guidance on how to design, implement and evaluate HIV prevention and treatment programmes in key populations, primarily men who have sex with men (MSM), people who inject drugs (PWID), female sex workers (FSW) and people in prisons. The course will also outline methods used to estimate the size of key populations.

The key part of the course is a group work, which consists of the development of a protocol that participants will present at the end of the course. Participants can choose the topic of the protocol – either for design and implementation of HIV interventions, evaluation of a programme/interventions or size estimation.
