Sponsored by the NICDTF, the primary aim of the programme is to provide youth and community workers with information and resources to work with clients in relation to sexual health and safer sex negotiation skills.
This is a multidisciplinary training programme that will provide information on HIV, STIs, Safer Sex Negotiation and Changing Sexual Behaviour Patterns, while providing participants with the necessary skills and capacity to disseminate the information to young people.
Who is the programme for?
Youth and community workers, etc., who will be required, on completion of the course, to deliver related sessions to the client group in their care.
