AIDS TREATMENT NEWS #220, April 7, 1995

The National AIDS Treatment Information Project, funded by the Kaiser Family Foundation, is producing a series of fact sheets of AIDS treatment information, to be available in June of this year. The information, designed for self-education and for counseling by community advisors, case managers, social workers, and clinicians, will be available by mail, by a fax-back system, and by computer. It will be available in English, Spanish, and Haitian Creole.

Several dozen fact sheets are being produced, in five topic areas: Overview of HIV Disease, Clinical Manifestations, Opportunistic Diseases, Therapeutics, and Special Topics.

This project is a collaborative effort of three institutions: Boston's Beth Israel Hospital/Harvard Medical School; San Francisco General Hospital; and the Gay Men's Health Crisis in New York. For more information, contact Helen E. Woods Wogan, Project Manager, Libby 317, Beth Israel Hospital, 330 Brookline Avenue, Boston, MA 02215, phone 617/667-5520, fax 617/667-2885, Internet hwoods@bih.harvard.edu, or HandsNet HN4722.

Comment This information should meet much of the need for fact sheets which physicians and assistants can give to patients on such topics as the importance of taking pneumocystis prophylaxis, etc. We are happy to see that it will be made readily available by mail, fax, and computer.
