The Mountain West AIDS Education and Training Center (MWAETC) 

In 2015, the Northwest AETC and some of the Mountain Plains AETC states merged to form the Mountain West AIDS Education and Training Center.  Through state based and regional programs, the new region now serves ten states:  Alaska, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah and Wyoming.  Our name has changed but our mission is the same: increase health care providers' capacity to provide high quality HIV/AIDS care within the region's health care systems by providing HIV treatment education, clinical consultation, capacity building, and technical assistance. Please check out our calendar pages for upcoming events and our training and resources page for your clinical or continuing education needs or just email or call one of the offices.
