NLM HIV/AIDS Information Resources
The number of Information resources available for people living with HIV/AIDS can be overwhelming. The Network of the National Library of Medicine (NNLM) HIV/AIDS Coordination Center has curated a list of trusted government resources that focus on different areas of HIV prevention and treatment, clinical trials, surveys and statistics, and HIV and pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) navigation and other health -related information.
The National Library of Medicine (NLM) and NNLM regularly offers classes that may be of interest to Community Based Organizations working with people living with HIV. Classes focus on how to use NLM/NNLM information resources, consumer and public health topics, grant writing and evaluation, and funding opportunities. Classes are free.
NNLM has many HIV/AIDS brochures, wallet cards and one page resource pages that are formatted and can be printed locally. These materials can be used for conferences, to share with clients and distribute among staff and stakeholders.
The traveling exhibit, Surviving and Thriving: AIDS, Politics and Culture, is based on a book written in 1987 by and for people wth AIDS that insisted people could live with AIDS, not just die from it. Jennifer Brier, the exhibition curator, explains that "centering the experience of people with AIDS in the exhibition allows us to see how critical they were, and continue to be, in the political and medical fight against HIV/AIDS." Surviving and Thriving: AIDS, Politics and Culture presents their stories alongside those of others involved in the national AIDS crises.
