Paediatric-Adolescent Treatment Africa (PATA) and Positive Action for Children Fund (PACF) will be launching a Clinic-Community Collaboration Toolkit and accompanying Be Connected e-learning course at the AIDS Impact 13th annual conference. The toolkit and e-learning course provide practical guidance for how clinics and communities can effectively work together to improve PMTCT and paediatric HIV treatment, care and support.
The AIDS Impact conference will take place in Cape Town between 13 and 15 November, promoting pioneering work on understanding the dynamics of a changing HIV epidemic. A key focus will be on innovative approaches to HIV prevention, treatment, care and strategic planning. Thus it is the ideal space for PATA and PACF to launch the toolkit, recognising that small improvements in hundreds or even thousands of clinic-community collaborations can lead to improvements in the quality of care and the health and well-being of children living with HIV. This in turn can contribute to our global targets to end MTCT and paediatric HIV by 2020, strengthen paediatric HIV case finding and improve access to treatment.

PATA and PACF are calling on all delegates attending the AIDS Impact conference to join them for the official launch of the Clinic-Community Collaboration Toolkit and Be Connected e-learning course on Monday, 13 November at 16h00 at the AIDS Impact Century City Conference Centre, Cape Town.
