Many HIV caregivers and AIDS experts recommend TheBody.com as an information resource for HIV patients, their family members and friends, and people with a basic interest in educating themselves about the disease. 'I know there's physician input for the site,' says Jeff Kirchner, medical director at the Comprehensive Care Clinic for HIV at Lancaster General in Lancaster, Pa. 'I can say this is a good site to start with. I trust this information.'
Kirchner also recommends the University of California, San Francisco, School of Medicine's HIVinsite.com, which offers 'comprehensive, up-to-date information on HIV/AIDS treatment, prevention, and policy.'
Other recommended sites for AIDS-related information include the American Foundation for AIDS Research, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, AIDS Education Global Information System, GayHealth.com, Project Inform, Test Positive Aware Network, Gay Men's Health Crisis, and AIDS Project Los Angeles.
