The AIDS Education and Training Centers (AETC) Program of the Ryan White CARE Act currently supports a network of 11 regional centers (and more than 130 local performance sites) that conduct targeted, multi-disciplinary education and training programs for healthcare providers treating persons with HIV/AIDS.

The AETCs serve all 50 States, the District of Columbia, the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and the six U.S.-affiliated Pacific Jurisdictions.

The mission of the AETCs is to improve the quality of life of patients living with HIV/AIDS through the provision of high quality professional education and training. The AETC Program is administered by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), HIV/AIDS Bureau.

A few of the Web site’s features

  • Trainer Resources with self-study modules, adult learning training designs, teaching methods (including clinical, group, mentoring based) and training materials (as curricula and slide sets)
  • Clinician Resources with a manual, support tools (as pocket guide, charts, posters, and patient information)
  • Reference Materials with fact sheets, articles, and Web links.
