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.
Each year, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updates a huge array of statistics on HIV/AIDS within the U.S. Look through slides on the nationwide epidemic or a breakdown by race/ethnicity. A huge amount of additional info is on the official CDC HIV/AIDS Web site, as well as our U.S. statistics page.
Over the years, HIV-positive artists have crafted countless stunning, thoughtful and provocative works of art (such as Max Greenberg's "Non-Compliance Plays Russian Roulette," above). TheBody.com is proud to be the online home for Visual AIDS, whose tireless efforts support and promote artists living with HIV, and preserve the estates of those who have passed.
