HIV/HCV Co-infection: An AETC National Curriculum
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) co-infection 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.
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.
