This mini-course is designed for primary care providers who take care of people living with HIV (PLHIV) and/or those at high risk of acquiring HIV. Knowledge about HIV status through HIV counselling and testing, antiretroviral, and clinical monitoring is only one part of comprehensive and competent care for PLHIV. Understanding the realities of the lives of patients is an important part of being a competent and supportive clinician. Both stigma and criminalization create an unfavourable environment, that limit open and supportive conversations hence limiting access to treatment. However, knowledgeable, empathic providers and provision of services within a human rights framework results in trust, increased engagement in care and service uptake. This workshop discusses how providers can best meet their health care needs, and how they can enhance their knowledge and skills in order to optimize their patients’ experiences when accessing care in order to improve clinical outcomes.
