[afro-nets] International AIDS Society Online Resource Library

Dear People,

The International AIDS Society (IAS) has launched an Online Resource Library @ 
http://library.iasociety.org/. The IAS offers the contents of the library to 
the public, free of charge. They invite you to return to it often, since the 
library continuously improves its services and new resources will be added on 
an ongoing basis. In addition, your comments, suggestions and questions are 
welcome. The core of the collection is comprised mainly of abstracts and other 
documents related to the international conferences they organize, though it 
also features materials produced by the IAS secretariat.

The IAS is the custodian of the biennial International AIDS Conference, the 
paramount gathering of all AIDS stakeholders. These conferences provide a 
unique forum for the interaction of science, community and leadership, with the 
goals of presenting new research, promoting dialogue and building consensus to 
advance the global response to AIDS. The IAS also organizes the highly 
successful IAS Conference on HIV Pathogenesis, Treatment and Prevention, which 
focuses on biomedical research, with an emphasis on the timely translation of 
scientific evidence into policy and practice. The IAS promotes knowledge and 
dialogue onsite at the conferences, and takes steps to maintain ongoing 
learning and dialogue and promotion of an evidence-based response to AIDS.

The Journal of the International AIDS Society (JIAS) is an open access 
peer-reviewed, primary-source online journal dedicated to the publication and 
dissemination of vital HIV and AIDS research relevant to developing countries 
and is available @ http://www.jiasociety.org/

The International AIDS Society (IAS) is the world's leading independent 
association of HIV professionals, with 14,000 members from 190 countries 
working at all levels of the global response to AIDS. The members include 
researchers from all disciplines, clinicians, public health and community 
practitioners on the frontlines of the epidemic, as well as policy and 
programme planners. The IAS also plays a leading role in policy and advocacy, 
working to implement effective, evidence-based policies and programmes to 
enhance the global response to AIDS.

Best,

Jakes
