2000. Training will last about 1 or 2 weeks and will involve topics such as general knowledge of HIV/AIDS and of its progres- sion, prevention, mitigation, and care of HIV/ AIDS patients. Approximately six teams of HIV/AIDS experts from various services and the AIDS service organizations would be formed. The training teams would set up multisectoral training camps at the level of each prefecture and of each large urban sec- tion. The leaders of the different frontline services and associations would invite their respective members to participate in these training programs. The trainees would re- ceive reimbursement of their travel costs, a small per diem for the training, and would be housed and fed during the week. During the last 2 days of the workshop, the trainees from each rural or urban munic- ipality (the commune) would form a local committee. They would prepare their own multisectoral action plans to train their local population and to start the process of behav- ior change. The committee would then be given a small budget in cash or by check to finance incidental costs of their respective program for the first 6 months. The initial objective in training of the population would be to provide 80% of the rural population and 90% of the urban popu- lation with basic knowledge about HIV/AIDS and its prevention. The program should lead to a de-stigmatization of HIV/AIDS victims and to a rapid start in behavior change.
