The AETC program has supported care and treatment for people with HIV through expert training and capacity-building for the past 25 years. The goal of this workshop is to demonstrate how AETC cross-regional evaluation data can be used to inform and optimize the activities of training programs. This workshop will begin with an overview of the national outcome evaluation of the AETC program. Workshop presentations will then demonstrate how standardized process data on training and participant characteristics can be combined with post-training outcome data to answer questions about specific program activities. Examples will include evaluation of HIV testing trainings, Minority AIDS Initiative activities and US/Mexico border activities. The workshop will close with a discussion of future opportunities to evaluate program effectiveness.

Learning Objectives:

  • This session will describe the cross-region evaluation efforts conducted by the AETCs.
    Identify processes that existing data can help inform and improve.
  • Apply the core concepts behind standardized evaluation and how to make optimal use of data.
