The Web site's goal is to ease access to resources, testing and provide vital information. "We at HHS encourage users to learn about prevention, testing, treatment, and research programs, and to find federal HIV/AIDS policies and resources," said Secretary Mike Leavitt in a statement released today.
The site includes sections on basic HIV/AIDS information, news and events, treatment research and advocacy agencies and programs, as well as a section dispelling myths about the disease.
"World AIDS Day is a time for reflection and renewal," the Leavitt said. "Let us mark it by acknowledging the work of all the worldwide partners in this battle and how, combined, we can strive to defeat HIV/AIDS."
