Supporting HIV care through education and innovation

Topic: Part F - HIV/AIDS Clinical Training

The AIDS Education and Training Centers (AETC) Program deliver HIV/AIDS clinical training via a network of regional and national centers. AETCs train providers to counsel, diagnose, treat, and medically manage people with HIV disease, and to help prevent high-risk behaviors that lead to HIV transmission. Eleven regional (multi-state) AETCs carry out the bulk of hands-on and distance-based learning. Six national AETCs support the regions and deliver cross-cutting assistance, including Web-based resources, multicultural training, evaluation, online and phone-based clinical consultation, and capacity building for minority community agencies.
