    Your invitation to participate in the CPA/BPS 2009 Symposium on the
         Management of Mother-to-Child Transmission in HIV/AIDS



Details on the Symposium:
Topic:
The Role of the Pharmacist in the Management of Mother-to-Child
Transmission in HIV/AIDS
Date:
February 5-6, 2009

             CPA, BPS and CAP acknowledge the support of the Commonwealth Foundation
                                   in this Symposium
Introduction:
A 2-day Interactive Symposium will be held in Bridgetown, Barbados, on
February 5 – 6, 2008. It is anticipated that 100 pharmacists from Barbados
and other CARICOM countries will be attending the Symposium.


During   the     Symposium,   delegates    will   be   updated   on   the   latest
epidemiological situation and recent developments in approaches to
prevention, care and treatment of HIV/AIDS.


During the interactive sessions, participants will combine information and
experience to define more prominent and constructive roles for pharmacists in
the management of mother to child transmission of HIV/AIDS.             Practical
strategies for implementation by the Barbados Pharmaceutical Society as well
as other CARICOM regional pharmaceutical bodies will result from intensive
discussion amongst the diverse groups during these sessions.


It is anticipated that pharmacists will be renewed in their conviction that they
can contribute proactively in the management of mother to child transmission
of HIV infection and the treatment of HIV/AIDS in general in the interest of
public health.


Target Groups:
Ministry of Health representatives
CARICOM Pharmacists, local pharmacists, doctors, nurses, and care givers


Aim and Outcome
The HIV/AIDS epidemic is a significant health risk to individuals and
communities living in Commonwealth countries. Based on current statistics,
sub-Saharan Africa and the Caribbean rates highest in prevalence and it is
appropriate and timely that the Commonwealth Pharmacists Association
(CPA) the Barbados Pharmaceutical Society and the Caribbean Association
of Pharmacists collaborate to facilitate the issuing of a Statement on the role
of the pharmacist in the fight against HIV/AIDS.
The outcome from the Symposium will be the development of the Bridgetown
Statement. The Statement will detail the strategies for a multi-faceted
approach whereby the Barbados Pharmaceutical Society will work
collaboratively with the Caribbean Association of Pharmacists, Ministries of
Health in CARICOM, other related ministries and government agencies to
promote the involvement of pharmacists in the development and
implementation of strategies to prevent and manage MTCT in HIV/AIDS.
