The Schools of Nursing at Muhimbili University of Health and Allied Sciences and the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) have been collaborating on a twinning partnership to develop an HIV nursing education preservice curriculum. The Tanzania HIV/AIDS Nursing Education (THANE) project was designed to increase the HIV education capacity of Tanzanian nursing schools by strengthening the knowledge and skills of the nurse educators. The THANE project includes three components: (a) development of 12 curriculum modules, (b) training of trainers, and (c) roll-out to all nurse educators in the eight zones of Tanzania and Zanzibar. The evaluation plan focuses on three main areas: (a) HIV knowledge, confidence in teaching, and thoughts about HIV, (b) participant satisfaction with the workshops, and (c) monitoring educators to assess implementation and dissemination of the THANE curriculum into existing curricula. To date, 300 nurse educators have been trained.
