and links to original source material. The archive of articles and online the library

Collins, Editor, HIV Treatment Bulletin Treatment Information Officer, HIV I-Base, London Sel IUN
ÆGIS: A well-organized site that provides virtually everything you need to
know about HIV/AIDS -- Medicine on the Net
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. Based on an idea conceived of ten years ago by Jamie Jemison of Orange
County, CA, this clearinghouse for knowledge has blossomed into a nonprofit charitable
and educational corporation . . . . Well done and warmest thanks! -- JM
Congratulations. Your site has been selected as a valued Internet resource for Discovery
Channel School. -- Bob Anderman, Discovery Channel
This is a must see site. -- Lyman Phillips, ECHO Strategies Group.
Thanks again for your wonderful work with AEGIS. The new web site is a marvelous
tool. As you know, there's nothing like it anywhere else, and certainly nothing
that approaches your service as a "one-stop shopping" source of information."
-- GF, NIAID, Bethesda, MD
[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. The range of information available is
so vast and its quality so dependable, that national and international organizations
routinely log onto the system to converse or download clinical information or late-breaking
news. -- Jeff Dawson, Gay & Lesbian Online, Peachpit Press, 1997. p.41
This is my one-stop shopping area for all of my AIDS-related information.
-- Norman R. Brown, Co-moderator, AIDS-HIV Fidonet Conference
... the best single source of AIDS information for individuals.
-- Tadd Tobias, John S. James/AIDS Treatment News
The gamut of resources . . . is quite literally the best available anywhere
in the world. -- Carlton Hogan, Training Coordinator, University of Minnesota
There are no other services that compare with the breadth and scope of information
on HIV/AIDS that can be accessed on this system. -- D.B./Arroyo Grande,
ÆGIS has the most comprehensive database of AIDS and HIV-related information
in the world, bar none. -- JPV/Houston, Texas
Thanks to your BBS, the quality of my life has been greatly enhanced. More important,
the use of treatment information on the service has slowed the progression of my
HIV infection. ÆGIS has become my primary source of AIDS information.
-- L.C.M./Boston, Masschusetts
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.
