Good nutrition is a fundamental part of caring for people living with HIV/AIDS. Good nutrition translated into a balanced diet is a positive way to respond to this illness, and it helps people live better, longer and more comfortable lives. This short course, which takes into account recent findings, aims to provide caregivers with practical knowledge about nutrition care and support for people living with HIV/AIDS. The course also seeks to sharpen caregivers communications skills to enable them to provide appropriate guidance in choosing the right foods, and in preparing them appetizingly and safely for people who are ill or with poor appetite. The course consists of a package of fifteen sessions that take about 12 to 15 hours to complete using a variety of classic teaching methods, including lectures, demonstrations, role-play and exercises. In addition to sessions on basic nutrition and communication skills, topics include feeding the child living with HIV, the role of medicines and myths in nutritional care, and discussion on how to increase access to food.
