Part F - HIV/AIDS Clinical Training

The AIDS Education and Training Centers (AETC) Program of HRSA's Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) delivers 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. Regional (multi-state) AETCs carry out the bulk of hands-on and distance-based learning. National AETCs support the regions and deliver cross-cutting assistance, including web-based resources, multicultural training, evaluation, and online and phone-based clinical consultation.
