CIDRZ facilitates National ARV Logistic Systems Training

CIDRZ, with the support from the US Presidents Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) partnership, is conducting a National ARV Logistics System Workshop to prepare health centre, hospital, District Health Management Teams, and Provincial staff to use the Standard Operating Procedures Manual for the Management of the National ARV Logistics System, and the job aids, to perform tasks necessary to successfully manage the Antiretroviral (ART) drugs logistics system.
During the official opening of the workshop, Chongwe District Health Director, Dr. Charles Msiska, emphasised the need for health workers to “give patients comprehensive care, don’t just see them as an HIV patient or look at numbers.”
The trainers guide being used was prepared as part of the U.S. funded DELIVER Technical Assistance support to the Ministry of Health and aims at strengthening logistics management of ARV drugs. DELIVER, is a six-year worldwide technical assistance support contract funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and PEPFAR.
