Part one of this content (up to “Information primarily for activists” ) was originally published by CATIE, Canada’s source for HIV and hepatitis C information.  For more information, contact CATIE at info@catie.ca.   Part two was compiled by Denis LeBlanc, 76Crimes Editor Emeritus and long time HIV+ activist.  This is by no means a complete list  – many nations provide excellent HIV/AIDS information geared to their specific populations.
