This presentation is part of : Nurse Educators in Botswana and their Response to HIV/AIDS
Fighting the HIV/AIDS scourge through strengthening the educational capacity
Naomi Mmapelo Seboni, PhD, RN, Department Of Nursing Education, University Of Botswana, Gaborone, Botswana

HIV/AIDS remains a critical component of the nursing education efforts in Botswana.  To this effect the department of nursing education in their effort to educate the nation in the prevention and control of HIV/AIDS embraced the concept of “Strengthening the Educational Capacity in the Prevention and Treatment of HIV/AIDS” which has been introduced by The World Health Organization to strengthen the capacity of existing educators in Botswana.  Informed nurses and other health care personnel can be effective in the educating the nation.
