Abstract

Antiretroviral therapy (ART) has been life saving for hundreds of thousands of Tanzanias affected with HIV/AIDS disease. With increased availability of (ART) in recent years, achievement of optimal adherence and patient retention are becoming the greatest challenges in the management of HIV/AIDS in Tanzania. The study was conducted in health facilities located in Temeke Municipality, its general objective was to investigate the influence of training to ARV`s drug providers in the health facilities at Dar-es-salaam. The study was guided by two objectives; the general objective and specific objectives to find out how training have influenced performance of health care providers in provision of ARV. The theoretical framework for the study was constructed on the pillars of Kirkpatrick`s Learning and Training Evaluation Theory from this theoretical framework it was expected that ARV`s drugs providers have been competent in dispensing ARV drugs in different health facilities. Two main data collection methods were used, questionnaire, which were completed by 85% of doctors, pharmacists and stock managers, and oral interview. The study revealed that, there was no sufficient time for health care providers to grasp in detail to improve their performance in their line of duty during the training. Also there are the challenges in implementing training which were minimum resources and fear of labour turn over. Temeke Municipal should build the capacity of health care providers by facilitating the training in order to increase skills and knowledge in provision of ART and in management of patient who have been affected with HIV/AIDS disease.
