IAPAC Changes Name to Include HIV/AIDS Care Providers
December 10, 2012
The International Association of Physicians in AIDS Care (IAPAC) has changed its name to the International Association of Providers of AIDS Care (IAPAC) to more formally acknowledge the contributions of the various professional and paraprofessional providers of HIV/AIDS care that make up the more than 17,000 members of the international association of primarily HIV-treating physicians. Since its inception in 1987, PAAC and its successor IAPAC have "supported and facilitated the delivery of HIV prevention, care, and treatment via multidisciplinary approaches that take into account a team dynamic," according to IAPAC president Dr. José M. Zuniga. The organization has also played a critical role in advocating for the rights of those living with HIV/AIDs as well as expanding access to treatment for HIV, malaria, TB, and viral hepatitis.
