The AETC Program was developed by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), U.S. Public Health Service, and the Department of Health and Human Services to provide customized multi-disciplinary training programs for healthcare providers treating persons living with HIV/AIDS. AETC regional offices conduct training for HIV care providers in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and the Pacific Islands.

LSU Health and Access Health Louisiana are regional AETC offices which partner to provide trainings and support throughout Louisiana. Both offices are part of the South Central region (SCAETC), covering Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Louisiana, and Arkansas.

Our trainings count towards requirements set by HRSA for FQHC providers, and we offer a variety of CME/CEU/CE accredited courses.
