Although research and teaching have helped make significant advances in HIV/AIDS treatment and prevention, it continues to be a global epidemic. UNAIDS estimates the total number of people living with HIV is about 33 million. Approximately 6,300 people are newly HIV-infected daily, with a total of 2.7 million people newly infected in the past year. Over 1.8 million people died from AIDS or AIDS-related infections last year alone.
The Johns Hopkins CCGHE wants to improve these statistics by providing health care workers with updated and practical HIV/AIDS clinical training suited for resource-limited settings. CCGHE has provided an in-country "train-the-trainer" nursing program for HIV/AIDS care. In November 2004 - January 2005, Johns Hopkins faculty presented a telemedicine training program, "Principles of Antiretroviral Therapy in HIV-Infected Patients," with a series of clinical case-based lectures and interactive discussions. Dr. John Bartlett, from the Johns Hopkins Division of Infectious Diseases is presenting a series of lectures and case discussions on ART in Ethiopia. Grand Rounds from the Johns Hopkins Division of Infectious Diseases are live webcast to centers around the world, and are recorded and archived for later viewing.
