Funding

AETC Education for Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants

Description
Grant Amount: Approximately $1,550,000 is expected to be available annually to fund at least five grantees.

This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) solicits applications for the AIDS Education and Training Centers (AETC) Education for Nurse Practitioners (NP) and Physician Assistants (PA) program. The intention of this funding opportunity is to establish nurse practitioner and physician assistant HIV/AIDS primary care education programs designed to train nurse practitioners and physician assistants in HIV/AIDS care and treatment. Several important changes in the U.S. population will both increase future demand for health care and affect the adequacy of the future health care workforce to meet that demand. These demographic changes include: (1) growth in the general population, (2) increases in the racial/ethnic diversity of the population, (3) changes in the age distribution of the population through the aging of the ‘baby boomer’ generation, and (4) changes in the gender distribution of health care providers (Dill and Salsburg 2008; Salsberg and Grover 2006; Smalarz et al. 2007; Center for Workforce Studies 2005). The greatest growth in demand for nurse practitioners and physician assistants has been in primary care.

The purpose of this FOA, which ties directly to the shortage of primary health care providers in HIV/AIDS care in the U.S., is to fund accredited schools/programs to train faculty that teach HIV/AIDS and primary care services for patients with HIV/AIDS to nurse practitioner and physician assistant students.

Funding preference will be given to applicants/organizations who request this and explain the basis for it as designated by Section 2692 (42 U.S.C. §300ff-111) of the Public Health Service Act. As amended by the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Extension Act of 2009, the Secretary shall give preference to qualified projects which will:
(A) train, or result in the training of, health professionals who will provide treatment for minority individuals and Native Americans with HIV/AIDS and other individuals who are at high risk of contracting such disease;
(B) train, or result in the training of, minority health professionals and minority allied health professionals to provide treatment for individuals with such disease; and
(C) train, or result in the training of, health professionals and allied health professionals to provide treatment for hepatitis B or C co-infected individuals.
