HIV disease has been recognized by the Centers for Disease Control since 1981, and has since that time advanced to become a worldwide pandemic.

The State of Florida mandated through the Florida Omnibus AIDS Act of 1988 (now called Section 381.004, Florida Statutes) that all health care practitioners, and others deemed necessary by the Florida Legislature, receive basic education in HIV disease in order to receive their first license in the State, and continuing education credits to continue that license each biennium.

This course provides the required information on transmission, infection control, epidemiology, clinical management, prevention, and the Florida Law.

Teaching Methods include: course content delivered in a text format, graphics, PowerPoint slides, live web links, discussion board and email with instructor. The final exam must meet a passing score of 70%.
