One of the best and largest sources of HIV/AIDS information on the web. -- Physicians' Research Network

AEGIS, for its top-notch coverage of AIDS information and news. The Sisters of Saint Elizabeth of Hungary have assembled a remarkable site which provides patients, students, and the medical community with the latest and most accurate information on this crucial topic.

Well done and warmest thanks! -- JM Massi, Ph.D.

This is a must see site. -- Lyman Phillips, ECHO Strategies Group.

[ÆGIS is] a dazzling achievement, made more singular by its creator: Sister Mary Elizabeth, who operates it along with her fellow Sisters of St. Elizabeth of Hungary in San Juan Capistrano, California.

There are now some doctors here in Sydney that are pumping me for what's coming in from ÆGIS so that they can read up and incorporate it into their patient management. So the work spreads far. --Dominic/Sydney, Australia
