About the AIDS InfoNet

The AIDS InfoNet is a project of the International Association of Providers of AIDS Care (IAPAC) and the New Mexico AIDS Education and Training Center in the Infectious Diseases Division of the University of New Mexico School of Medicine. The InfoNet was originally designed to make information on HIV/AIDS services and treatments easily accessible in both English and Spanish for residents of New Mexico. Its mission has expanded to that of providing HIV/AIDS treatment information in non-technical language in various languages. The primary audience for InfoNet materials includes people living with HIV and their caregivers, especially nurses and other first-line treatment providers. Through collaborative agreements with AIDS service organizations in various countries, the InfoNet is expanding the range of languages in which its materials are offered.

The information provided on this site is designed to support, not replace, the relationship that exists between a patient/site visitor and his/her existing health care providers.


InfoNet Fact Sheets

AIDS InfoNet treatment information is provided in the form of single-topic Fact Sheets.

  • Fact Sheets are updated frequently to reflect advances in HIV/AIDS therapies. InfoNet users do not need to read multiple reports on a single topic. Each fact sheet is a comprehensive, updated summary. Please check the web site frequently to make sure you have the newest version of each fact sheet!
  • The Fact Sheet language is non-technical with most Fact Sheets written at the 8th or 9th grade reading level. Although these are not "low literacy" materials, case managers have reported that they are helpful as a focus for discussions with a wide range of clients, and as a "memory jog" for clients who have difficulty reading.
  • Most of the Fact Sheets can be printed out on a single-page to facilitate distribution and reading. The Fact Sheets can be read online by people with Internet access. However, many people with HIV/AIDS have no Internet access. The InfoNet project uses the Internet as a means to distribute printable versions of the Fact Sheets. Links from each Internet page permit printing using Microsoft Word or Adobe Acrobat software.
  • Topics include both conventional and alternative/complementary therapies for HIV/AIDS.
