HIV awareness red ribbon and a heart on a turquoise background.

TAKE on HIV strives to provide the necessary tools, resources, and quality HIV education to future healthcare professionals through the integration of the Nation HIV Curriculum e-Learning Platform (NHC).

This project provides tailored training and technical assistance to faculty of participating accredited health professions programs on the navigation and integration of the NHC into their programs and curricula.

Our program helps to address the national shortages in the HIV clinical workforce by creating a pipeline of future competent healthcare professionals adequately training to medically manage the treatment and care of people with HIV.
