The Thai Red Cross AIDS Research Centre provides trainings and updates on treatment and care of HIV-infected patients to health care professionals to increase capacity of individuals to provide high quality care to people living with HIV.
Training programs for health care practitioners include:
- The Bangkok International Symposium for HIV Medicine, a world class conference on HIV/AIDS organized annually in January
- Symposium series on HIV and co-infections and long-term care
- Gilead training on HIV medicine for physicians in Asia
- Training workshops on HIV and Hepatitis diseases in 5 provinces in Thailand, supported by Merck
We also provide trainings to the general public including students and marginalized people such as prisoners and injecting drug users. Realizing that shortcomings in knowledge about HIV lead to misconceptions and fear of people living with HIV and increased risk of HIV transmission, we consistently work with many communities, companies, entertainment businesses, schools and prisons to improve AIDS awareness and to reduce the stigma and discrimination associated with the disease.
Training sessions to the general public include:
- Update on HIV medicine for people living with HIV
- Training on HIV directive in the workplace
- HIV education in prisons, supported by Global Fund
- HIV education in local administrative authorities
- Mobile clinic in schools, universities and entertainment venues for Men who have Sex with Men (MSM) and youth such as saunas, gay bars
- Edutainment through various activities, for example the “One Touch: Love and Learn” Project for youth in schools and universities
We can organize tailor-made courses to suit individuals and organizations’ needs.
