Greetings Wise Women!!

March 2003

Welcome to another issue of Wise Words. This issue contains some very helpful information about human papillomavirus (HPV). HPV is a major concern for women living with HIV. Consistent and early gynecological screening and treatment are essential in managing your health, and this is particularly true in detecting HPV and HPV-related conditions (ano-genital warts, precancerous conditions and cervical and anal cancer). In the Policy Section of Wise Words is information about Medicaid, which is currently under significant stress and pays for the healthcare of many women living with HIV. Finally, a greeting from Project Inform's new Hotline Associate, Kris Star, tells us a little more about the Hotline and information that may be valuable to you and/or the women you work with.

We hope this issue of Wise Words will be informative and useful. As always, if you have comments, suggestions or questions, please contact me at

Thank you for your consistent support! Peace and blessings.

Shalini Eddens
Program Manager, Project Wise
