Where do you get your information from?
Aug 11, 1998
Hi Rick, Thank you for the time you have invested in keeping us all informed and up to date on HIV/AIDS. With all the conflicting advice and views on contracting and preventing HIV, where do you compile your information from, and how do we know it is from a trustworthy and factual source? I'm not trying to "downplay" your insight on HIV/AIDS, but who do we trust? Thank you in advance.
Response from Mr. Sowadsky
Hi. Thank you for your question. My information comes from a variety of sources, including:
1) Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). 2) World Health Organization (WHO). 3) Food and Drug Administration (FDA). 4) National Institutes of Health (NIH). 5) reports published in the medical literature, available through the National Library of Medicine.
For more information about conflicting HIV/AIDS information, read the posting, Why Is There So Much Conflicting AIDS Information? Who Can You Believe?.
If you have any further questions, please feel free to call the Centers for Disease Control at 1.800.232.4636 (Nationwide).
