What We Do: We conduct targeted, multidisciplinary education and training programs for healthcare providers treating persons living with HIV/AIDS. KY AETC serves as one of the U.S. Public Health Service designated AIDS Education and Training Center for healthcare providers in Kentucky.

· HIV Prevention and Testing
·Taking a Sexual History
· Fundamentals of HIV Prevention Counseling

Organizational technical assistance is available to clinics/practices/organizations to build local capacity in training and clinical care. It may range from a single training event or consultation or may form a long-term relationship with the KYAETC and a clinic or agency. Goals of technical assistance include providing resources, guidance and assistance to improve HIV service delivery and performance on an organizational level. Our technical assistance program can assist with change in organizational infrastructure and service delivery.
