Sites: Links to AIDS Information
Where do you start? Finding your way through AIDS sites can be daunting.
A page at the New York Academy of Medicine
site can provide a stationary point with a number of links to sites.
Here is a short list of sites that provide information on AIDS and HIV
infection. Many of them provide links to additional sites to explore.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National AIDS Clearinghouse
site, where you can retrieve an electronic version of the HIV/AIDS Surveillance
Report at least a week before it is mailed out, as well as daily news,
statistics and services for people with HIV.
The AIDS Research Information Center,
Inc. (ARIC) is a private, non-profit AIDS medical information service
located in Baltimore, Maryland. ARIC serves People with HIV/AIDS and those
who care for and love them. Their speciality is making complex medical
information understandable to the average Person with HIV/AIDS. ARIC offers
only current, medically accurate information on AIDS treatment and resarch
in "plain English" to their clinets. Their mission is "Patient Empowerment
Through Information." ARIC operates an AIDS Medical Information
Hotline and publishes ARIC's AIDS Medical Glossary and a quarterly
newsletter, The Dirt On AIDS.
Many community organizations that have responded to the AIDS epidemic
have also begun appearing on the Web. For example, go to the AIDS
Quilt for information about the memorial and to participate in honoring
the memory of those who have died from HIV infection.
