AIDS, Educating - Raising Awareness - Building Community

AIDS, Educating – Raising Awareness – Building Community www.aids.org This is a very informative web site filled with important information from preventing HIV/AIDS to living with and treating the disease. Every year it seems as though deaths caused by this disease continue to increase dramatically among every age, race, color or sex, whether homosexual or heterosexual. The first step in understanding HIV/AIDS is to be educated. This web site does just that. You can access video presentations of doctors giving lectures and lessons on many different aspects of this disease. You can view information on numerous drugs that are currently being used to prolong the lives of people infected with AIDS, as well as common side affects that may occur. There is a wealth of periodicals and articles that people can access that deal with different topics associated with this disease. One of the most important lessons that this web site teaches is that it is possible to live a long life with AIDS thanks to many new medicines that are being developed and FDA approved everyday. There is also a link to a dating web site for singles that have tested positive for sexually transmitted diseases, www.positivesingles.com , to let them know that they are not alone in their fight and that there are millions of people out there dealing with the same issues. It also provides a way for them to get in touch with others, whether it is for conversation or getting back into the dating environment. This web site is very useful for everyone, from those who have tested positive to those who wish to remain educated. One of the things that I found to be most useful about this site was that there is a glossary of HIV/AIDS related terms for people who need help understanding the language commonly used among people whether in reading about the disease or in discussion. As long as this disease continues to kill millions of people every year I believe that we should all do our best to remain educated to prevent and hopefully someday bring an end to this horrible disease.
