July 07, 2017
HIV HCV Curriculum Logo

The goal of this curriculum is to provide an evidence-based online curriculum for healthcare providers and trainers of healthcare providers to increase their knowledge on human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) coinfection among people of color in the United States and its territories. 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. Download the orientation slide set to familiarize yourself with the curriculum's navigation and features or add it to your training toolkit.

A team of AETC Program faculty and staff identified six core competencies for providers treating coinfected people with HIV. Each section addresses one of these core competencies, and includes multiple lessons.

To earn free continuing education credits (CME or CNE), you must register and complete the course modules (30 minutes and 0.5 CEUs per module) on the Rutgers University Center for Professional Development website.

If you are not interested in receiving CE credits, you may view all course module content on this website.
