Fighting AIDS denialism

I’ve posted before about harmful myths associated with HIV/AIDS. I’ve now found a website at AIDSTruth.org, which is dedicated to presenting scientific evidence about HIV/AIDS and treatments. The site has an excellent set of resources and I encourage you to have a look.

As is stated in the Durban declaration the evidence that AIDS is caused by HIV-1 or HIV-2 is clear-cut, exhaustive and unambiguous, meeting the highest standards of science. However, a few vocal people – AIDS denialists – refuse to acknowledge the facts, and continue to conduct a duplicitous propaganda campaign aimed at convincing people, including HIV-infected individuals and government health officials, that the virus is harmless (or, in some extreme cases, non-existent) and that standard medical practice should be abandoned. The purpose of this website is to expose the denialist propaganda campaign for what it is, in order to prevent further harm being done to individual and public health.
