The primary objective of the Regional Knowledge Hub for the Care and Treatment of HIV/AIDS in Eurasia is to create the human resource capacity necessary to provide care to people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) by developing expertise among healthcare professionals, cultivating training capacity so knowledge and skills can be passed on to others, and massing a body of evidence-based resources and informational materials. To do this, the Hub is collaborating with international experts and educational institutions throughout the region to develop and provide a series of training workshops and online resources designed to give practitioners the skills necessary to improve care for PLWHA.
