HIV/AIDS Prevention and Control: A Short Course for Humanitarian Workers—Day 4


Day 4 examines the two remaining transmission routes: the blood route and the mother-to-child route. Universal precautions and occupational exposure are discussed, and issues around mother-to-child transmission are debated. The main focus is on prevention, but aspects of care are also introduced. The day concludes with a session on stigma, which further links prevention and care, and thus provides a bridge to Day 5.
