Trainings & Workshops
Lack of knowledge about HIV/AIDS and prevalent misconceptions were the major challenges at the beginning of the HIV epidemic. Dr. Vinay and Sanjeevani started conducting awareness programs for different sections of the community.
To aid these training sessions, a comprehensive slide show about the disease was prepared. This tool proved to be extremely effective and was widely used by various animators. The slide show explained the facts about HIV with gender sensitivity and understanding. In 1999, this slide show was translated in 11 regional languages across India.
As the epidemic evolved, professionals at Prayas as well as other organizations, started coming across diverse issues, which would require training.
Over the years Prayas has developed its expertise and conducted various training program for health care professionals as well as the communities. Presentations, pictures, games, group discussions, role-plays, quiz are some of the techniques used while conducting training. These programs are innovative and participatory in nature.
The following list shows the training programs designed and conducted by Prayas. New programs according to specific requirement could also be developed.
