International Training and Education Center on HIV/AIDS
I-TECH promotes activities that increase human capacity for providing HIV/AIDS clinical care and support in countries and regions hardest hit by the AIDS epidemic. I-TECH was awarded a second, five-year contract (2006-2011) by the Health Resource Services Administration (HRSA) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Joint Uganda Malaria Training Program (JUMP)
The Academic Alliance Foundation, in partnership with the Infectious Disease Institute, Makerere University-University of California, San Francisco (MU-UCSF) and the Uganda Malaria Surveillance Project (UMSP), is developing an exemplary malaria training program to support the Ministry of Health's (MOH)'s new national policy on malaria treatment. The University of Washington has a subcontract to evaluate the training program. The evaluation will focus on 2 types of outcomes related to the objectives above: 1) clinical skills in case management and preventive therapy, and 2) training skills and activities by the alumni. The program is funded by a three year grant from the Exxon Mobile Foundation (2005-2008).
Promoting HIV/AIDS Awareness and Technology Training among Swazi Youth
The University of Washington's Center for Workforce Development in partnership with the Strategic Education Centers (SEC), which is a Seattle-based NGO, has created a Life Skill Enrichment curriculum to empower adolescents primarily ages 14 - 17 in Africa and the U.S. Working with the 18th District of the African Methodist Episcopal Church, and the AME Hillside School in Swaziland, they are planning to train 100 Swazi youths using the curriculum and evaluate its effect on students' HIV risk behavior. The project is funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation from Oct 2005 to May 2007.
