HIV counselling handbook for the Asia-Pacific
AbstractThe HIV Counselling Handbook is intended to provide counsellors with a quick reference to the essential elements and procedures of HIV counselling. It provides an orientation on the background information, roles, and ethics important to those engaged in HIV counselling, as well as step-by-step guidance on counselling individuals, couples, and groups. Additionally, it offers more focused guidance on marginalized populations, to reduce HIV transmission and improve the quality of life of intravenous drug users, men who have sex with men, sex workers, and other groups. Ethical strategies, treatment adherence, occupational exposure, and the establishment of support networks are also covered. The handbook is designed as an essential complement to the trainer's manual and tools. For training purposes, the trainer's manual and tools must be used in conjunction with the handbook.
