Buyers' Club List, December 2001

December 28, 2001

AIDS Treatment News publishes a buyers' club list each December. For a short overview and introduction to the meaning, history, and services of these organizations, see AIDS Treatment News #309, December 18, 1998.

We focus on buyers' clubs specializing in HIV (we also included Rainbow Grocery in San Francisco, because of its extensive selection of supplements and excellent information about them). All the organizations listed below are nonprofit. Most can provide products by mail order. Most have fact sheets or other information, and some have a nutritionist or other expert available at certain times to answer questions. Some offer financial assistance with purchases if necessary. Most are open to the public, but some require membership (which may require an annual fee, or be restricted geographically or in other ways). Call ahead for current information.

We have not listed medical marijuana buyers' clubs here. The best way to find out about any in your area is by referral from a local AIDS service organization, support group, or healthcare professional.
