OUR MISSION: To improve access to care and quality of life for people who are infected with or at risk for HIV infection by providing comprehensive HIV education services that increase the capacity of health care communities to provide high quality, evidence-based prevention and care.
The Mountain Plains AIDS Education and Training Center (MPAETC) is one of 11 regional AETCs funded nationwide by a grant from the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) through the Ryan White Program.
The Mountain-Midwest HIV Telehealth Initiative (MMHTI) was funded by HRSA’s HIV/AIDS Bureau to help primary care clinics provide cutting-edge services to patients with and at risk for HIV infection in accordance with the National HIV/AIDS Strategy’s (2010) goal to increase access to care and improve health outcomes for people living with HIV (PLWH) and with federal HIV treatment guidelines.
Telehealth programs such as ECHO at the University of New Mexico are an effective tool to improve clinical outcomes for underserved populations with complex health problems.
