Information Collection Request Title: HRSA AIDS Education and Training 
Centers Evaluation Activities

(OMB No. 0915-0281)--Revision

    Abstract: The AIDS Education and Training Centers (AETC) Program, 
under the Title XXVI of the Public Health Service Act, as amended, 
supports a network of regional and national centers that conduct 
targeted, multi-disciplinary education and training programs for health 
care providers treating persons with HIV. The AETCs' purpose is to 
increase the number of health care providers who are effectively 
educated and motivated to counsel, diagnose, treat, and medically 
manage individuals with HIV infection, and to help prevent high risk 
behaviors that lead to HIV transmission.
    Need and Proposed Use of the Information: As part of an ongoing 
effort to evaluate AETC activities, information is needed on AETC 
training sessions, consultations, and technical assistance activities. 
Each regional center collects information on AETC training events, and 
is required to report aggregate data on their activities to HRSA. The 
data provides information on the number of training events, including 
clinical trainings and consultations, as well as technical assistance 
activities conducted by each regional center, the number of health care 
providers receiving professional training or consultation, and the time 
and effort expended on different levels of training and consultation 
activities. In addition, information is obtained on the populations 
served by AETC trainees, and the increase in capacity achieved through 
training events. Collection of this information allows HRSA to provide 
information on training activities and types of education and training 
provided to Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program recipients, resource 
allocation, and capacity expansion.
    Likely Respondents: Trainees are asked to complete the Participant 
Information Form once a year and trainers are asked to complete an 
Event Record for each training event they conduct during the year. In 
addition, each regional AETC (8 total) will compile these data into a 
data set and submit to HRSA once a year.
    Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by 
persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide the 
information requested. This includes the time needed to review 
instructions; to develop, acquire, install and utilize technology and 
systems for the purpose of collecting, validating and verifying 
information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and 
providing information; to train personnel and to be able to respond to 
a collection of information; to search data sources; to complete and 
review the collection of information; and to transmit or otherwise 
disclose the information. The total annual burden hours estimated for 
this Information Collection Request are summarized in the table below.
