Course Overview

The CDC estimates roughly 1.1 million people 13 years of age and older are living with HIV infection in the United States, including nearly 162,500 who are unaware they are infected. Healthcare providers licensed in the District of Columbia must complete continuing education that addresses the effect of HIV/AIDS on differing populations, pre- and post-exposure prophylaxis, and the treatment and monitoring decisions required for the care of this population. This course sets the stage for addressing those requirements in the context of the history of the infection in this country, risk factors for infection, testing, and strategies for preventing transmission. In addition, prevention of opportunistic infections and community resources available to patients is discussed.
