GENERAL COURSE DESCRIPTION

HIV-AIDS

This introductory course provides an overview of the HIV/AIDS pandemic 35 years after the first diagnoses.

Information regarding testing, treatment and prevention strategies is presented. Next comes the ways in which HIV/AIDS affects the special populations of youth, transgender people, and those over 50 years.

The course is composed of five documents, one video about the importance of getting tested, and resources for further information.

Author's Personal Note:
After 35 years, I am extremely grateful that I am still here after watching most of my friends die. I miss them all, especially Arthur. I am very thankful for all the advances in treating HIV/AIDS that I have benefited from and the care I have received from my healthcare providers. I am particularly filled with gratitude for the as yet unknown mechanism in my body that has kept me in good health with a minimum of HIV medications. HIV/AIDS is not going to go away anytime soon and more than anything, I want my colleagues to understand the history, impact, treatment and prevention issues surrounding this horrific global health tragedy. It is in this spirit that I have developed this updated, comprehensive course in the hope that it will prepare health care providers with the knowledge they need to make their contribution to caring for those with this disease.
Tom Smith Ph.D.
