Developed the Kenya
National HIV Surveillance Manual
Issue: The CDC office in Nairobi requested
assistance for development of this long-needed manual.
Solution: After review of existing
Kenya surveillance projects and the protocol and a very brief discussion
of needs, we used an assortment of existing training materials to
quickly pull together a draft manual for Surveillance healthcare
Time was short. It was clear that the manual could not be completed
in the time allowed. Accordingly, we produced a draft manual with
samples of practice sessions and job aids so that local staff could
add additional content. CDC and Kenya National AIDS and STD Control
Programme staff were able to complete the manual and move it through
the Kenya Ministry of Health approval process.
