Peer Education Training

A HIV/AIDS Peer Educator Program involves nominated employees receiving special training as to allow them to be a facilitator, counselor and friend to their fellow employees on health issues.

We offer a Peer Educator training that runs over four days, covering the areas of: HIV/AIDS and TB contraction, prevention and management, stigma and discrimination, gender and HIV, communication and basic counseling skills, whilst empowering participants to be able to make client referrals, provide commodities such as condoms and deliver services such as psycho social support.

The training can be conducted on-site at your business or at an external venue, which we can coordinate on request.

When deciding the number of Peer Educators needed for your workplace, a ratio of one peer educator for every fifty employees is recommended.

Mobile Wellness Clinic

A Mobile Wellness Clinic with trained staff is able to be hired to provide diagnostic services at your Workplace. HIV Testing and Counseling (HTC), Basic TB Screening, Blood Glucose Level Testing, Cholesterol Level Testing and Blood Pressure Level Testing are available, with clients referred to the nearest clinic or hospital for further diagnosis or treatment as necessary.

If it is not feasible for the clinic to operate outside your workplace, staff can easily relocate to a room of your choice inside your establishment.

It is recommended Mobile Clinic Services, in particular HTC be made available to your employees once every three months.

Event Coordination: Family / Community / World AIDS Day

Our strong experience in co-coordinating a range of health events such as: Family Days, Peer Educator Days, Employee Wellness Days, Policy Launches and World AIDS Day Celebrations, allows us to work with you to deliver an event that surpasses expectations.
