The New England AIDS Education and Training Center (NEAETC)
Location: Regional Office: 333 South Street, Shrewsbury, MA
The New England AIDS Education and Training Center (NEAETC), a program of Commonwealth Medicine, offers HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis, and STD education and training for healthcare providers, residents, and health professions students throughout the six New England states. The goal of NEAETC programs is to educate and mentor healthcare providers to be more effective as they counsel, diagnose, treat and manage individuals living with HIV/AIDS across the continuum of disease, as well as assist in prevention efforts. The NEAETC maintains an active web site as well as a library of curricula, resource materials and webcasts on HIV, Hepatitis, STDs, and a myriad of other related topics. These are all available for use throughout the health professions, including students. Their website also provides links to the nationwide network of AIDS Education and Training Centers (AETC’s) and related resources.
NEAETC is the only health professions education program focused on HIV, Hepatitis and STDs providing education, clinical consultation, mentorship and technical assistance targeting the six New England states’ workforce about the most up to date approaches to care, prevention and innovations in HIV science. In 2014, this program served approximately 10,000 caregivers; and it currently remains 1of 11 such centers nationally funded by the Ryan White program and administered by the Health Resources Services Administration (HRSA) for almost 30 years.
