Elton John AIDS Foundation:

Elton John AIDS Foundation The Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF) was established in the United States in 1992 by Sir Elton John. EJAF's U.S. office is located in New York City. In 1993, Sir Elton also established the Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF-UK) in the United Kingdom, headquartered in London. These two organizations function as separate entities with their own distinct grant-making portfolios, but both pursue similar missions - to support innovative HIV prevention programs, efforts to eliminate stigma and discrimination associated with HIV/AIDS, and direct care and support services for people living with HIV/AIDS. Collectively, the two organizations have raised over $220 million since inception in support of projects in 55 countries around the world, including significant funding dedicated to programs in their respective home countries.

National Library of Medicine's HIV/AIDS Specialized Information Services:

National Library of Medicine's HIV/AIDS Specialized Information Services The National Library of Medicine Division of Specialized Information Services (NLM) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) recognize that it is critical to establish relationships with organizations that encourage and foster communication and information access. A major effort to enhance the understanding of information needs, resources, and services began in June 1993 when NLM and the NIH Office of AIDS Research (OAR) cosponsored a conference that brought together users of NIH information resources including health care providers, scientists, information specialists, journalists, and members of the community affected by HIV/AIDS.
The purpose of the conference was to review the various HIV/AIDS information services, assess current efforts with respect to needs, and identify additional needs. The outcome of the conference was the Report of a Conference Co-sponsored by the National Library of Medicine and the NIH Office of AIDS Research (PDF, 780 KB). As a result of the recommendations made during the conference, the NLM issued a Request for Quotations (RFQ) for AIDS Community Information Outreach Projects in May of 1994. The purpose of the HIV/AIDS Community Information Outreach Project is to design local programs for improving HIV/AIDS health information access for patients and the affected community as well as their caregivers and the general public. Emphasis is on providing information or access to health and medical information in a way that is meaningful to the target community, and increasing the awareness and utilization of NLM online health and medical resources in the HIV/AIDS community.

Founding Sponsor:

It was 1996 when Roxanne Laboratories (now, Boehringer Ingelheim) first approached AEGiS with an offer to transform its HIV/AIDS information bulletin board system (BBS) into a Web site. AEGiS had been a BBS for several years and was known as an important worldwide resource on HIV/AIDS, however it was becoming evident that the resource needed to be modernized. Boehringer Ingelheim's interest in AEGiS would allow for that opportunity to modernize, and for AEGiS to capture a larger audience as a result. So, the decision was made -- AEGiS would partner with Boehringer Ingelheim and begin to offer information on the Internet.

Boehringer Ingelheim's initial investment and further financial assistance has made it possible for AEGiS to educate millions of people around the world about HIV/AIDS via the Internet.

We thank Boehringer Ingelheim for their investment in our Web resource and their willingness to assist in the creation of this Journal of Record on HIV/AIDS.
