Training Course for Auxiliary Social Workers on HIV-Sensitive Child Protection

This course was initially developed for the Ministry of Social Affairs (MINAS) in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The aim of the course was to develop an appropriate training program for social service workforce engaged with children, either in the government or non-government and community sector. The training was designed to be based on the previously recognized functions and competencies of social workers already in place in the DRC. The course has been developed in line with the International Alliance on Social Service Personnel’s core functions and competencies. These functions and competencies were field-tested in the DRC by community workers and their supervisors.
