The AETC Program and its multiple components work together and serve as a comprehensive training and educational resource for health care providers in the treatment and prevention of HIV/AIDS.
The SE AETC region is comprised of eight states representing 19.7% of the US population and 24% of Persons Living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA).
