Several Web sites (including http://hiv.medscape.com, http://hivinsite.ucsf.edu, http://www.HIVandHepatitis.com, http://www.thebody.com, and http://www.natap.org) will publish reports during the conference. And http://hivinsite.ucsf.edu will list other sites with live coverage, during or shortly after the Durban meeting; to reach this listing, click 'Medical Information', then click 'Conference Summaries.'
The Medscape site this year will include reports by six South African physicians, who will cover issues including antiretroviral therapy, management of opportunistic infections, and preventing mother-to-infant transmission in resource-poor settings.
AEGIS, http://www.aegis.org, will as always carry wire-service and other AIDS news reports.
Information specific to women can be found at the organizing site of the Women's Satellite meeting, http://www.womenatdurban.org.
And speeches of South African President Thabo Mbeki and Deputy President Jacob Zuma, as well as press releases from their office, are always available at http://www.gov.za/president/index.html. Incidentally, an excellent 4-part background series on Mbeki, published in a major South African newspaper just over a year ago, is available at: http://www.suntimes.co.za/1999/05/16/insight/in01.htm.
