/24-7PressRelease/ - CHELSEA, MA - March 28, 2007 - HIVConnect.net (www.HIVConnect.net), the latest nonprofit project by former Manhunt general manager, Stephan Adelson, is a place of free dialogue for people with HIV/AIDS, AIDS Services Organizations, Community Based Organizations, AIDS Service Organizations, researchers and others in the community.
Launched on March 1st, HIVConnect.net is a unique site that connects all sectors of the HIV/AIDS community.
HIVConnect.net is a place for organizations to link with their clients on-line and their clients to link together, bringing the concept of a local drop in center to the internet.
"My goal is to create an environment of comfort, and deepen the social interaction between clients and the various organizations and individuals that seek to support them." said Adelson.
HIVConnect.net includes a place for member profiles while offering a comprehensive library with topics from co-infections to Issues for Native Americans. Members are invited to post articles and comment on ones currently posted.
There are three types of membership available on the site. One profile type is for those that are HIV-positive, a second for organizations, and a third for friends and family members. To ensure the privacy and comfort HIV-positive members family and friend profiles do not have access to the HIV-positive community.
Long term survivors of HIV/AIDS are becoming isolated environments, where medication and mutations of the virus are creating distinctive responses in individuals. Their doctors often face unique situations, yet sharing these experiences is often difficult and time prohibitive. HIVConnect.net provides a place for authentic communication while ensuring the privacy of the individual. To further assure privacy no identifying personal information such as name or address is collected.
Those that are newly diagnosed HIV-positive today have a completely different experience from those that were diagnosed over 20 years ago. It is imperative that the stories and experiences of the long term survivors are preserved and shared with this new generation.
HIVConnect.net hopes to make life easier for all who are affected by HIV/AIDS while educating those that seek to support them.
