NPIN admin's picture
This announcement solicits applications for the Regional AIDS Education and Training Centers (AETC), a component of the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Part F AETC Program. The mission of the AETC Program is to increase the number of health care professionals who are educated to counsel, diagnose, treat, and medically manage people living with HIV (PLWH), and to help prevent high-risk behaviors that lead to HIV transmission.

NPIN admin's picture
Prevention programs must be based on the actual needs of the relevant populations. There is evidence of an interaction of comorbid mental health factors, such as alcohol/drug use and abuse with high-risk sexual behaviors. Alcohol and drugs may provide a disinhibiting effect as an impetus to engage in unsafe behaviors, but a more complex conceptualization that includes mental health factors may be required to design effective prevention programs.
