For Adults : AIDS
  • ACTIS is a Public Health Service (PHS) project provided collaboratively by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, the Food and Drug Administration, the National Library of Medicine and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
  • The AIDS Reader published by Medscape carries some articles about vaccines. If you're a registered Medscape reader, you can get free access here to the National Library of Medicine's HIV/AIDS-specific database of medical abstracts from select MEDLINE journals and published proceedings of top AIDS meetings.
  • AIDS Vaccines are covered in some detail at the website of The Body, a commercial multimedia AIDS and HIV resource. The information is findable from the front page only by using the search mechanism; fortunately, the page is readable without loading the fairly heavy graphics.
  • The AIDS Vaccines page of the NIH's NIAID website provides a comprehensive overview of AIDS vaccine discovery and development. It is kept quite current, which unfortunately is a rarity among websites carrying "news."
  • AVAC is the AIDS Vaccine Advocacy Coalition. The subhead of the organization's website, "Because the world could have an HIV vaccine," just about tells its story, but visit their pages anyway for an example of a very usable content-rich site.
  • Capitol Area Vaccine Effort (CAVE) is a volunteer panel of individuals from the general public and from the diverse communities affected by AIDS in the metropolitan DC area. CAVE is organized to assist and advise AIDS vaccine trials in the nation's capitol.
  • HIVNET Information Server in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, contains valuable information on HIV and/or AIDS, in Dutch and in English. It also carries links to Aegis and Fidonet discussion groups, in those two languages, plus French, German and Spanish.
  • The International AIDS Vaccine Initiative (IAVI), a non-profit organization founded in 1996, has now laid out a blueprint for a scientific program to speed up AIDS vaccine development efforts worldwide. The goal is to identify an AIDS vaccine as soon as possible. The website is rich in information about vaccines against AIDS.
  • UNAIDS, the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS, is the official source of international information about the disease. Sponsored by UNICEF, UNDP (United Nations Development Programme), UNFPA (United Nations Population Fund), UNESCO, WHO and the World Bank, the website carries links to the AIDS pages of each.
  • Vaccine Advocates (formerly called VACTUP) seek accelerated development efforts towards a safe, effective and affordable HIV vaccine(s), accessible globally to at-risk populations. The site is rich in information, but somewhat sparse in links to additional information.
