A few Philadelphia FIGHT staff attended the International AIDS Conference (IAC) in Vienna last July. They brought back a lot of interesting materials, which will be available in the AIDS Library.
They include all the official IAC materials, as well as position papers and reports by organizations all over the world working on HIV/AIDS. Some are big books, some are short fact sheets, some are DVDs and other multimedia.
All of the material is available in the AIDS Library starting this week. Stop by any time we’re open – Monday through Friday, 1pm to 5pm – and catch up on the global response to the epidemic. Just be aware that the items can be viewed and copied in the Library, but that they can’t be checked out.
Below is a list of the materials, sorted by topic. Under that are links to videos and other info about the IAC, as well as some news and opinion reports on it.
