HIV & Primary Care

The SCAETC provides training, technical assistance, and consultation to increase knowledge, skills and clinical capacity of health care providers and other members of the healthcare team to provide the highest quality HIV care and address outcomes along the Continuum of Care-- earlier diagnosis, linkage to care, care maintenance and viral suppression.

Our training also includes HIV prevention and management of comorbidities, such as sexually transmitted infections, viral hepatitis, substance use disorders, and behavioral health disorders.

Trainings are offered in-person or virtually – both live and self-paced trainings - to primary care providers, HIV and non-HIV specialty care providers, and other members of the primary healthcare team with the goal of addressing National HIV/AIDS Priorities of enhancing prevention and testing, increasing access, and reducing disparities.
