Training is in full swing

We started on January 4rd, while I was still tired of the bus trip the day before. Doctors Simon and Claude of Adi picked me up in Arua. Thank you very much.
The chief of the Kakwa opened the training. And the opening was followed by an introduction and lessons. We plunged right in. Some participants were added at the very last moment, for example, the vice-president of Adi church district and at the same time pastor of Adi church, pastor Langa. Great!!! He is member of our board, so this is a real advantage to the AIDS Program.
After three days together, we formed four groups. One small group of three for the laboratory, but two people are doing a practical in the lab, so were implicated straight away; one smaller group of two for the pharmacy; a bigger group for psycho-social help, where the AIDS Program staff attended; and the biggest group is for the doctors and nurses, where I also partake. We still have three more days, the other three groups finished yesterday. The staff of the AIDS Program, plus two candidates to be more involved in our work, said they have learned a lot and are eager to apply it in their ministry. And also I am learning new things, especially about Prevention of Mother to Child Transmission and the Anti Retrovirals.
