Ryan's list of useful HIV websites



It just occurred to me that it might be a good idea to put together a list of HIV websites that I have found useful while working in Africa. This is by no means a comprehensive list. Let me know if I have left good ones out.

Baylor International Pediatric AIDS Initiative (BIPAI) website/
Contains links to complete our HIV Curriculum for the Health Professional, our
Pediatric HIV Pictoral Atlas and other Educational Resources.

ICAP News and Resources links International Center for AIDS Care and Treatment Programs (ICAP) summarizes recent press releases and media coverage. http://www.columbia-icap.org/resources/ is even better (the "pediatric resources" link is rich with excellent references and tools). Thanks Floriza!

ITECH Clinical Training Materials Database
Great for putting trainings together. They post tools from several orgs that are pretty easy to search.

HIV Insite
Comprehensive, up-to-date information on HIV/AIDS treatment, prevention, and policy from the University of California San Francisco. They also have a page with
links to recent HIV-related national and int’l guidelines.

Kaiser Daily HIV/AIDS Report
An excellent daily HIV/AIDS news summary from the Kaiser Famliy Foundation.

Medical News Today
A good summary of HIV/AIDS-related news, borrowing heavily from the Kaiser Daily Report above.

Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation Newsroom
Summary of recent news.


Clinton Foundation Media Center
Another source for summaries of HIV news.

International AIDS Alliance Publication Search Page
Allows searching for country-specific or topic-specific information.

www.aidsmap.com
General info links to the following:
news, treatment & care, hiv worldwide, living with hiv, preventing hiv, organisations, hiv basics and more.

You have provided a lot of good information. I would like to add a reference to the GUAHAN Project (http://www.guahanproject.org/index.php). This Guam-based AIDS Service Organization helps people living in the U.S. affiliated Pacific region--American Samoa, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia, the Republic of Palau, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and Guam--which suffers enormous health disparities due in part to limited Federal assistance, and in part due to the post-colonial era per capita income: for example, it is only $2,900 in the Marshall Islands, and $2,300 in the Federated States of Micronesia. For comparison, the U.S. per capita income is $46,000. A small donation to the GUAHAN Project can make a huge difference in stemming the tide of HIV in these small, culturally rich enclaves that could be destroyed by HIV/AIDS.

Hi Ryan.
Thanks for great resources.
Met you in SF when my husband (Conrad-UCSF PICU) introduced us...Recently have suddenly and unexpectedly come into a medical leadership position for the group of orphanages I've volunteered with forever. Have to present on short notice at a conference for our medical staff from 7 countries in El Salvador next week. Looking for quick guidance on vaccine recs for HIV+ kids...if life and blogging would allow you time to echar un ojo at what I've got, you'll move even higher on my "that guy is awesome" list....and if not, well, keep on doing your good work!
