The Continuum of Response (COR) approach seeks to provide clients and their families with the essential prevention, care/support, and treatment services to reduce HIV transmission and disease progression and to maximize health outcomes. Following diagnosis of HIV, the next step along the COR cascade is linking persons living with HIV (PLHIV) to care and treatment, retaining them in care, and ensuring that they receive all recommended services, often referred to as the cascade of care.
Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP) is a complication that affects public health in Latin America. The region accounts for about half of all cases of blindness worldwide for this cause. The aim of the webinar is to recognize the disease, its problems, early diagnosis, and management in order to help reduce the incidence of childhood blindness. Please note that this webinar will be conducted in Spanish.
