Abstract [en]

Collaboration between traditional and biomedically trained health workers is regarded as key in HIV/AIDS control. However, few studies have focused on exploring ways of enhancing this collaboration. Using a pre- and postintervention questionnaire, the authors assessed changes in attitudes to and practices of collaboration among 19 biomedical and 28 traditional health care providers following a 12-month dialogue-building intervention in Ndola, Zambia. The intervention consisted of peer group discussions, interactive group discussions, training sessions, and peer-influenced networking. The results show that although both groups of providers had fairly positive attitudes toward each other before the intervention, further improvements in attitudes were observed after the intervention. Referrals between the two sectors and cross visits increased. However, some attitudes to collaboration became more negative and cautious after the intervention. Dialogue-building interventions involving traditional and biomedical providers are not only feasible but also complex. Intersectoral collaboration needs time and coordination between all relevant actors in the community. Adapted from the source document.
