Caregiver training in Uganda













We will evaluate the effectiveness of our caregiver training intervention within a randomized controlled trial (RCT) for both HIV-infected and affected Ugandan children in the household, in addition to the target child. This study emphasizes both developmental outcomes for the children, quality of caregiving at home, and psychosocial benefit outcomes for caregivers.
