MADISON, Wis. — Twenty-seven credit union leaders, volunteers and members from the Mwalimu SACCO (credit union) recently completed a 10-day intensive training program on HIV/AIDS prevention in Nairobi, Kenya as part of the World Council of Credit Unions’ Cooperative Development Program.

These participants are the first group of peer leaders at Mwalimu. The next step for these peer leaders is to train five selected peer educators, also from the credit union’s membership in order to receive certification as an HIV/AIDS peer leader from the JHPIEGO Corporation, the nonprofit health organization affiliated with Johns Hopkins University that is implementing the training and certification of the peer leaders program, according to WOCCU. The training course includes segments on presentation skills, basic facts about HIV/AIDS, comprehensive HIV/AIDS care and prevention, assessing HIV/AIDS risk and behavior change.
