Its mission is "(1) to describe forms and patterns of use of alternative medical therapies for the treatment of patients with HIV infection and acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS), and (2) evaluate effectiveness of alternative therapies for the treatment of HIV/AIDS from five program areas of alternative medicine: nutrition, traditional and ethnomedicine, energetic therapies, pharmacological and biological therapies, and bioelectromagnetic medicine."
