HRSA has released another national curriculum on HIV care: the HIV/HCV Co-infection: An AETC National Curriculum. This resource was released just a week after the HRSA-funded National HIV Curriculum that covers the full range of HIV prevention and care topics. The HIV/HCV curriculum trains providers on HIV/HCV co-infection among people of color. Core competencies cover:
  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.

The curriculum was developed under HRSA's Jurisdictional Approach to Curing Hepatitis C among HIV/HCV Co-infected People of Color, funded through the HHS Secretary's Minority AIDS Initiative, and developed by a team of AETC clinical staff and others.
