LEARN: Educate Yourself and Others About HIV/AIDS

November 15, 2010

However much you think you know about HIV/AIDS, there is always more to learn. And of course, if you're just beginning to learn about HIV in the first place, there is definitely more to learn -- so much so that it can seem overwhelming. Whether you're new to the community or a long-time veteran, you can use this listing of some of the most informative articles on our site (or resources elsewhere on the Web) as a starting point from which to learn more about HIV/AIDS -- or, in the spirit of World AIDS Day, to share that knowledge and awareness with others.

AIDS Quilt

Next to the AIDS ribbon, the AIDS Memorial Quilt may be the most visible, and emotional, symbol of HIV/AIDS on the planet. Browse a selection of panels online.

A huge amount of additional info is on the official CDC HIV/AIDS Web site, as well as our U.S. statistics page.
