In February 2007, RCQHC/ANECCA provided technical assistance to EGPAF- Swaziland in form
of 4-day training during which 20 healthcare providers from EGPAF supported sites were
oriented in pediatric and adolescent HIV counseling skills. The course was an ‘excerpt’ from the
ANECCA Pediatric and Adolescent HIV Psychosocial Care and Counseling Training Curriculum/
Course initially designed to be conducted over a minimum of 12 days. At the end of this course,
consensus was reached between the two organizations that there was need for more capacity
building of a similar nature for staff of EGPAF-Swaziland supported sites. It was on this premise
that EGPAF- Swaziland engaged RCQHC/ANECCA, in 2009, to provide 12-day training for 20
facility-based service providers in pediatric and adolescent HIV psychosocial care and counseling,
in preparation for a new EGPAF programmatic initiative to expand pediatric testing and
diagnosis in the country’s health facilities. Trainees were equipped with the necessary knowledge
and skills and facilitated in developing results-oriented action plans aimed at guiding them in
implementing their newly acquired skills. The plans were also to serve as a benchmark for support
supervision exercises to strengthen and consolidate the trainees’ knowledge and skills.
