An HIV Information & Educational Resource Site
This site was developed to provide persons with HIV & AIDS, as well as their friends and family, an easy-to-access and user-friendly site with clear, accurate, and up-to-date information about HIV care.  Information is power.  Persons with HIV respond to therapy much more vigorously if they are well educated about the disease and its treatments.
