World AIDS Day

December 1 - it's World AIDS Day and this year it's been 30 years...30 years of fear, death, and a struggle to fight against a virus that uses our own bodies against us.

Looking for information on HIV/AIDS?

Want to read the latest UNAIDS report on the status of the epidemic (released November 2011)

Or maybe you just want to talk to are some Twitter accounts to follow:

@talkHIV - by the CDC
@HIVReport - news aggregate
@AIDSinfo - by the NIH
@AIDSgov - U.S. Dept of Health and Human Services
@pozmagazine - lifestyle magazine about being HIV-positive
@UNAIDS - the United Nations joint program on AIDS
@hivlawproject - The HIV Law Project
@IndianaSHINE - Indiana University School of Medicine project for prevention, treatment, and management
@napwaus - National Association of People with AIDS
@MNAIDSProject - the Minnesota AIDS Project
@ProjectInform - HIV/AIDS support line
@AIDSConnect - Chicago area community group
@iasociety - International AIDS Society in Geneva
@HIVthisweek - blog from the director of UNAIDS
@ActionAIDS - so you don't have to face AIDS alone
@AIDSHealthcare - AIDS Healthcare Foundation, San Francisco
@AIDSmeds - info on meds
@cressycat - Cressy the AIDS cat
@joinRED - fighting AIDS in Africa (and holding an event with President Obama)
@HIVAlliance - the HIV Alliance of Oregon

These are just a sampling - a number of other state, local, and country-based organizations are out there. They're all "facing AIDS" for World AIDS Day.
