AIDS training center gets funding

The Graduate School of Public Health (GSPH) has received a three-year, $10.65 million grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration, Bureau of HIV/AIDS, to continue operating the Pennsylvania/Mid-Atlantic AIDS Education Training Center (PA/MA AETC).

PA/MA AETC, funded by the Ryan White Comprehensive Care Act, provides clinical HIV/AIDS education and training programs for primary health care providers in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia. The program is headquartered at GSPH's Department of Infectious Diseases, which provides evaluation, programmatic monitoring and oversight of the project. It is directed by Linda Frank, assistant professor of infectious diseases.

The PA/MA AETC's targeted audiences include health care providers from all Ryan White HIV treatment programs, community/migrant health centers, jails and prisons, state agencies, maternal/child health providers, family planning providers and other programs serving the poor and medically underserved in rural and urban areas. The PA/MA AETC emphasizes minority providers and those who serve minorities.

PA/MA AETC is one of 14 AETCs, which are funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration, a division of the Department of Health and Human Services.
