USAID's Strengthening High Impact Interventions for an AIDS-free Generation (AIDSFree) Project conducted a webinar on Wednesday, June 27, 2018, to launch the Lopinavir/ritonavir (LPV/r) Pellet Toolkit.
LPV/r pellets are a new formulation of a pediatric antiretroviral therapy. The LPV/r Pellet Toolkit provides clinical information for health care workers (HCWs) related to dosing and administration of the medication, as well as resources for HCWs to use when working with patients’ caregivers. The toolkit also contains guidance for Ministry of Health staff and other stakeholders on health system considerations for planning, implementing, and managing national rollout of LPV/r pellets.
In this webinar, presenters demonstrated the functionality of the toolkit and reviewed the resources and tools in these two core sections (Health Care Workers, and Rollout Planning and Management), as well as ancillary content. Presenters also discussed the development process for the online toolkit and materials that were incorporated. There wase time at the end for presenters to respond to questions submitted via Adobe Connect.
