About Us


Delivers innovative education and training to improve access to care and quality of life for people who are living with or are at-risk for acquiring HIV.

    The Mountain West AIDS Education and Training Center (MWAETC), based at the University of Washington, offers HIV treatment education, clinical consultation, and capacity building assistance to health care professionals and organizations across our ten state region.

    Our primary audience includes physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, dental professionals, clinical pharmacists, and other health care team members who work in rural and urban areas.  We train Ryan White funded agencies, federally funded community and migrant health centers, tribal and Indian Health Service clinics, state and local health departments, corrections facilities, and private practice settings serving persons with HIV. 

    As the epidemic disproportionately affects sexual, racial and ethnic minorities in the region, the MWAETC offers specific programming for providers and organizations serving these populations.  

    We are a part of a network of eight regional AETCs that cover the United States, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.  Funded through the Health Resources and Services Administration, the national AETC network is the professional training arm of the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program. 

    The MWAETC offers a variety of  educational opportunities for health care professionals and organizations in rural and urban settings to meet their specific HIV/AIDS education needs through:

    • Lectures & conferences
    • Case-based presentations
    • Web-based training
    • Clinical consultations
