Education is an important element of The Union's HIV work. Training courses are developed based on project and country needs and are always included in project activities. An example of one such training was the first joint TB and HIV Programme Managers Course, which was held in Jinja, Uganda in March 2008. The course was developed by The Union in collaboration with the Uganda National Tuberculosis and Leprosy Programme and the National AIDS Control Programme.
Onsite training and mentorship are an integral part of technical assistance, providing support to health workers during field visits.
