GLOBAL: Correction: IAPAC Changes Name to Include HIV/AIDS Care Providers


Prevention News Update (12.12.12) Aids Weekly Plus

In the PNU summary of the newspaper article published December 10, the original name of the association and acronym were incorrectly reported. The newspaper article listed the name of the association as The Physicians Association for AIDS Care (PAAC). In fact the association has changed its name from IAPAC (International Association of Physicians in AIDS Care) to IAPAC (International Association of Providers of AIDS Care).
