Baseline Survey on Mental Health Knowledge

A group of 14 Adherence Counselors and Treatment Coordinators gathered at the Gede Foundation Training Room on Saturday afternoon (May 24, 2014) to start the Gede-NEPWHAN baseline study as part of their joint partnership on Enhancing the Capacity of HIV/AIDS Adherence Counselors to Improve Treatment and Care in the FCT.

The purpose of the gathering was for the group to know how to administer the baseline questionnaire and to be introduced to the importance of mental health knowledge, particularly in relation to HIV/AIDS. From the questions and concerns shared by the participants, it was clear that mental health awareness needs to be raised at the community level.  The research will also result in a major document which will be circulated widely throughout the development and health community.
