The five days training of trainers integrating nutrition in HIV/AIDS care and support interventions. The National Nutrition Strategy developed by the FMOH in 2008 also placed PLWHA as one of the priority groups on how to integrate nutrition to HIV AIDS care. Dr Fikre Lemessa opened the training in speech and stated that HIV/AIDS has been with us for more than two decades, but it remains a problem whose solution continues to elude us all. We are making some progress in understanding this challenge, but we still have a long way to go in containing its spread. In Ethiopia, where more than 1.1 million people are living with HIV, malnutrition and food insecurity are endemic. People Living with HIV (PLHIV) are particularly vulnerable to malnutrition and food insecurity which in-turn negatively affects their quality of life and adherence to medical care. However, he said, insufficient availability of nutrition professionals remained to be one the challenges that hinder the coordination and implementation of nutrition efforts in the country. The training is offered by Dr. Kate Sandler from Tuft Univeristy and Dr Tilahun Teka Senior nutrition and HIV specialist from AED / FANTA. The program is organized by the joint collaboration of Jimma Univeristy, Tuft University, Hawassa Univeristy, save the children USA and USAID.
