Executive summary 
This report presents information on the process of the consultancy for curriculum adaptationexercise for Swaziland. The curriculum adaptation process was very participatory and inclusive ofdifferent partners in Swaziland that include MOH-SNAP, EGPAF, ICAP, URC, BAYLOR differentuniversities in Swaziland, Clinton Foundation and others; while ANECCA gave the technicalguidance.The developed training curriculum will be used to train Health Care Providers in Swaziland in HIVcounseling and psychosocial support for children and adolescents.HIV counseling and psychosocial support for children is a key gap area in the care process bymost health care providers due to limited knowledge and skills and more importantly limitedresource materials including specific curriculums to cover counseling and psychosocial support forchildren and adolescents.The overall objective of the consultancy was to offer technical assistance to develop a NationalHIV counseling and psychosocial support for children and adolescent adapted from the ANECCApsychosocial care and counseling curriculum. RCQHC/ANECCA was also requested to TrainTrainers using the developed psychosocial National HIV counseling and psychosocial supportcurriculum to build capacity at national level and in turn facilitate the roll out of the programthroughout the country
.
The curriculum adaptation process started by desk review of available curriculums followed byworkshop attended by HTC-ETWG (HIV Testing and Counseling –Extended Technical WorkingGroup in Swaziland) to determine curriculum content, objectives and general lay out. A smallereditorial team composed of HTC- SNAP officials worked hand in hand with the consultant to puttogether the draft curriculum that was presented to the stakeholders. The stakeholders helped toinput the curriculum and thereafter a training of trainers’ course was facilitated using the adaptedcurriculum.
