AETC National Coordinating Resource Center

An evidence-based online curriculum for healthcare providers and trainers of health care providers to increase their knowledge on human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) co-infection among people of color. Topics covered include prevention, screening, diagnosis and treatment recommendations as well as barriers and other co-factors that may impede optimal treatment outcomes for co-infected people of color. 

A team of AETC Program faculty and staff identified six core competencies for providers treating co-infected people living with HIV (PLWH). Within each topic area, there are multiple lessons.

Core Competencies

  1. Epidemiology
  2. Prevention
  3. Screening, Testing, and Diagnosis
  4. HCV Treatment
  5. Recommendations for Subpopulations of HIV/HCV Co-infected Persons
  6. Addressing Barriers for Coinfected People of Color


This curriculum was developed as a component of the Secretary's Minority AIDS Initiative-Funded Jurisdictional Approach to Curing Hepatitis C among HIV/HCV Co-infected People of Color project through the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB).
