Winter '96

Women are beginning to be recognized as part of the AIDS pandemic. We, as women infected and affected by HIV/AIDS, are beginning to join together effectively to see that our special needs are met. Women Alive is intended to inform women and to help us find each other for encouragement and support. We hope you enjoy this newsletter and will consider getting involved in its publication.
