Resources

A partial list of resources that were particularly helpful to me as I sought to learn more about HIV/AIDS: (This list will be added to as I learn about other top-notch resources)

Websites

from HIV to Home This site is written to educate families and assist in the adoption of HIV+ orphans. I personally found the webinar explaining about the disease extremely helpful. (We had to watch it at 3 a.m. here, but it was worth setting the alarm!) The link on the HIV FAQs will answer most any question you have.

project HOPEFUL Tons of useful information including the Truth Pandemic video that you can share with others to help reduce the stigma of the HIV+ status. A new series through their blog link answers your most burning questions: If the question hasn’t been answered yet, then ask it! No topic will go unanswered!!

Books

We had the pleasure to meet with Debbie when she was in Kyiv on two occasions: one being an AIDS forum. This book is written from the perspective of two practitioners who have worked in the field of HIV/AIDS for years. Lots to think about!
