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. 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).
