Nhóm KC - Tiếng nói của người trong cuộc

KC là viết tắt của Key Correspondent, tiếng Việt là “Thông tin viên nòng cốt”. Từ việc hiểu rõ nhiều tiềm năng trong cộng đồng chưa được khơi dậy cũng như mục tiêu tăng cường sự tham gia của chính cộng đồng NCH trong phòng chống HIV/AIDS bằng thông tin truyền thông, SCDI đã chủ động xây dựng một đội ngũ nòng cốt bao gồm những người có năng lực, đam mê viết lách, đến từ các nhóm cộng đồng và đặc biệt họ là những người đang hàng ngày đối mặt với HIV.


Psychological support and comprehensive care for HIV patients

Since 2005, GIP-ESTHER has been implementing comprehensive care for HIV patients on ART at the Infectious disease department at Dong Da hospital and Viet Tiep hospital (Hai Phong). In 2009 - 2010, SCDI’s Counseling and Training program continues to receive support from GIP-ESTHER. The activities of the project change every year to meet the actual need of partner hospitals as well as requirements from the sponsor.
