There is overwhelming evidence that people living with HIV achieve better healthcare outcomes when they are treated by providers that are knowledgeable in HIV, as well as when they are treated in their own communities. The HIV TeleECHO Clinic, in collaboration with the New Mexico AIDS Education and Training Center (AETC), unites a multidisciplinary team of HIV experts from around the state with healthcare providers treating HIV patients in rural and underserved areas. A short didactic training presentation that is relevant to HIV providers starts the hour long teleECHO clinic. Individual cases are presented by treating providers and discussed by the group to provide consultative advice on the clinical management of HIV patients. Relevant peer-reviewed articles, literature, and resources are circulated to enhance participants’ knowledge base and continuing medical education credits are provided.
