"'I'm a Health Worker' - Abduaraman Gidi" made by IntraHealth International.

"After opening the clinic in northern Uganda, PCAF mental health (MH) staff requested specialized HIV training because they felt it was critical to address their clients' MH and HIV care and support needs in a holistic and knowledgeable manner. In northern Uganda, MH service providers must know their individual client, and having HIV knowledge and experience is key to being effective in their work. In comparison to the rest of the country, estimated HIV prevalence in northern Uganda is significantly higher (8 to 12 percent compared to 6.7 percent).(1) When MH services are being delivered in generalized HIV epidemics, such as in northern Uganda, MH providers must understand the association between HIV and MH and provide strong linkages and referrals to services that meet the needs of people living with HIV (PLHIV).”
