Nurse Initiation Management of ART Training

Nurse Initiation Management of ART Training (NIMART)

HEAIDS has facilitated Nurse Initiated Antiretroviral Therapy Training through its partnership with the Department of Health and the Foundation for Professional Development (FPD).

This initiative in support of Campus Health Services has been taken towards the expansion of HIV treatment and ART and TB diagnostics services. This will assist nurses and health care workers to respond to HIV, TB and STI treatment and case management.

99 nurses applied and 74 from 21 institutions were selected for the five day programme which was rolled out on a regional basis from the end of July 2012.

This partnership with the Department of Health represents an enormous cost value to HEAIDS inclusive of the training and food and accommodation costs for five days.
