China: Helping nurses become leaders on HIV/AIDS (February 2006)


The Emergency Plan supports the China Nursing Leadership Initiative for HIV/AIDS Risk Reduction Program. This program is dedicated to improving the capacity of community-level nurses who play a critical role in HIV/AIDS prevention, care, and treatment. Nurses who provide services addressing the needs of those most at risk and those infected with HIV were provided with intensive training not often available in rural communities. To date, nurses have received training and materials in areas such as antiretroviral treatment, palliative care, prevention, communication, counseling, and patient support.
