HIV/AIDS education center grant renewed

Pitt’s Graduate School of Public Health (GSPH) has received a five-year, $19,050,875 grant renewal from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Bureau of HIV/AIDS, to continue operating the Pennsylvania/Mid-Atlantic AIDS Education Training Center (PA/MA AETC). The center provides clinical HIV/AIDS education and training programs for primary health care providers in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Ohio and the District of Columbia.

Funded by the Department of Health and Human Services and HRSA’s Ryan White Comprehensive Care Act, the center is headquartered at the GSPH Department of Infectious Diseases and Microbiology, under the direction of Linda Frank, assistant professor. Frank provides direction, evaluation and oversight of the consortium project, which includes 10 other universities and entities within the mid-Atlantic region including: Howard, Johns Hopkins, University of Maryland at Baltimore, Virginia Commonwealth and West Virginia universities, University of Cincinnati, Ohio State, INOVA Healthcare, Inc., ChristianaCare, Inc. and the Health Federation of Philadelphia.

The PA/MA AETC’s targeted audiences are health care providers from all Ryan White HIV treatment programs, community/migrant health centers, jails and prisons, state and public health agencies, maternal child health providers, family planning providers and other programs serving the poor and medically underserved in rural and urban areas.

PA/MA AETC is one of 11 AETCs around the United States, all of which are funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration, a division of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
