Enable Health Society is currently implementing the PACT (Promoting Access to Care and Treatment) project with a goal to improve the survival and quality of life of people living with HIV. Through this project, Enable Health Society aims to strengthen the capacity of NGO sector providers to ensure increased access to quality care and support services to people living with HIV in project areas.
The project is being implemented in nine states - Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, Manipur, Nagaland, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan. The types of service providers to be trained include:
- Peer Educators Positive Speakers (PEPS) who are people living with HIV/AIDS as treatment educators
- District Project Coordinators (DPC) and Support Net Officers (SNO) providing supervisory support for the treatment peer education.
The focus of training/capacity building is on treatment adherence, facilitative supervision, sexual and reproductive health and Men as Partners. Strengthening of Institutional Capacity Building through Continuing Education and Training Centers (CETCs) is being carried out. These training centres located in different states of the country ensure roll-out of trainings of different categories of providers with continuous technical and managerial support from Enable Health Society.
Around 1800 peer educators, district project coordinators and support net officers have been trained as Master peer treatment educators on Treatment Adherence. Continuing Education and Training Centres have also been set up in different parts of the country to roll out the trainings.
