“No Show” Policy

We hope that there is enough commitment to this training that we will not have any “no shows”. At the same time, we want to stress that at present, we only have the resources to provide this training to a very limited number of PLHIV. We have finite and limited resources to make this training a reality. If you must cancel, we ask you give PAN five days’ notice. Deadline to withdraw is Wednesday June 5 at 4 PM.
