  • International AIDS Economics Network - "provides data, tools and analysis on the economics of HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment in developing countries, for compassionate, cost-effective responses to the global epidemic. The network began in 1993 as an informal group of researchers, policymakers, program administrators and others from development agencies, multilateral institutions, universities and NGOs. Since 1997 the network has championed the use of new information technologies especially e-mail and the World Wide Web to link researchers and the HIV/AIDS policy community world wide. Major support has been provided by UNAIDS, the World Bank, and USAID, while additional support has been provided by the European Commission and Merck & Co. Inc."

  • NAMES Project AIDS Memorial Quilt - "In June of 1987, a small group of strangers gathered in a San Francisco storefront to document the lives they feared history would neglect. Their goal was to create a memorial for those who had died of AIDS, and to thereby help people understand the devastating impact of the disease. This meeting of devoted friends and lovers served as the foundation of the NAMES Project AIDS Memorial Quilt. Today, ten years later, the Quilt is a powerful visual reminder of the AIDS pandemic. Over 41,000 individual 3-by-6-foot memorial panels -- each one commemorating the life of someone who has died of AIDS -- have been sewn together by friends, lovers and family members. The NAMES Project Foundation coordinates displays of portions of the Quilt worldwide"

  • National AIDS Treatment Advocacy Project (USA) - "provides the latest in HIV and AIDS drug development, research, and treatment information (on topics such as protease inhibitors, nucleosides, non-nucleosides, and double protease combinations). NATAP's newletter, our New Protease Inhibitor User's Guide, as well as in-depth articles on HIV and AIDS treatments, and other publications are all available on this site. We also provide comprehensive reports from the Fifth Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections conference, as well as from the ICAR, ICAAC, IDSA, European and International HIV and AIDS conferences, and from other sources"

  • San Francisco AIDS Foundation - "founded in 1982 in San Francisco's Castro district as an emergency response to a quickly emerging health crisis. Its primary purpose was simply to assemble and disseminate critical information to gay men who were being diagnosed with a rare and frightening cancer.
    As the health crisis grew to epidemic proportions and spread into new populations, the San Francisco AIDS Foundation correspondingly grew and responded to new challenges. Building upon its original mission to educate, the AIDS Foundation added comprehensive services for people living with HIV disease and AIDS and an aggressive public policy component to compel federal and state governments to address the growing epidemic.
    Fifteen years later, the San Francisco AIDS Foundation is firmly established as a global leader in the fight against AIDS. With an annual budget of $18 million, over 100 employees, 350 volunteers and 130,000 individuals served in 1996, the AIDS Foundation continues to face daunting challenges at every turn with compassion, dignity and a sense of purpose"
