November 30, 2011 - US News and World Report (HealthDay News).  Advocates for HIV/AIDS research and treatment met Wednesday to discuss how to reduce the spread of the disease in the United States, improve access to better care and raise general awareness of the ongoing epidemic. 

November 30, 2011 - Washington, DC - National HIV Awareness Month.  On the eve of World AIDS Day, a day the global community observes the impact of the AIDS pandemic worldwide, a coalition of national AIDS organizations announces a complementary effort to address the domestic HIV/AIDS epidemic by establishing July 2012 as National HIV Awareness Month. The goal of National HIV Awareness Month is to engage civil society and the private sector in the United States to create and invest in broad-scale public awareness of HIV/AIDS, end HIV stigma and discrimination and engage new stakeholders in the fight against the disease, with the ultimate vision of ending the epidemic.

May 20, 2011 - Oakland, CA.  On Wednesday, May 18, 2011, the New York Post published an article that speculated on the HIV status of the young West African woman who has brought sexual assault charges against a very powerful and wealthy man, the now-resigned IMF managing director, Dominique Strauss Kahn. The Well Project, Inc. is deeply disturbed and outraged by this instance of irresponsible, sensationalistic journalism, which has the potential to increase the already significant effect of stigma, racism and sexism on the lives of women.

May 2, 2011 - Poz.  The Well Project founder, mother (her older daughter was POZ’s first cover baby, celebrating an HIV-negative birth), positive for 23 years.

June 5, 2011, marks 30 years since the first published accounts of what became known as AIDS.  For this anniversary, we asked 31 long-term survivors who’ve appeared in POZ what moves and sustains them and whether they think they’ll live to see a cure. Why 31? One for each year, and one more for good luck.
