Best birthday ever!

Brian’s trip to UG! One of the happiest times I’ve had in UG!
Comprehensive HIV Prevention Course, Complete!
One of the pilot courses that my co-fellow and I have been working on just finished today. The course focuses on comprehensive HIV prevention for program managers and leaders in the field of HIV prevention in Uganda; as far as I know this is the first course on comprehensive HIV prevention and the use of blended learning for education in Uganda. The last three days had participants presenting some wonderful program designs that they created during the 12 week distance learning portion of the course.
Now, after countless hours of designing, creating, and preparing for the course we have 10 graduates and 10 innovative prevention programs that (hopefully) will be implemented in their organizations. Despite the challenges that come with designing and coordinating a course I’m glad that I’ve been able to contribute to the fight against HIV/AIDS worldwide and I’m proud of all the folks that took this course and continue fighting to reverse the pandemic.
