Today is World AIDS Day

HIV, Fenway Health Study, Stronger TogetherDespite amazing advances there remains no cure and new infections continue to be reported.  In honor of World AIDS Day, make a commitment to know your status if you’ve not been tested recently and encourage your friends to do the same. AIDS Service Organizations (ASO) around the country and the world, still need your support. Here in Boston, our largest ASO is The AIDS Action Committee of Massachusetts.  Visit their website, make a donation or volunteer.

World AIDS Day Boston: Getting to Zero

New Fenway Institute study explores revolutionary method of HIV prevention

HIVThe Fenway Institute is conducting a study to test a manufactured antibody that will prevent HIV and help researchers learn how the antibody works.

The Fenway Institute is looking to enroll HIV-negative individuals between 18 and 50 years of age and in good health.  Anyone interested in participating in this study should know that it is impossible for the vaccines to give you HIV and cannot cause you to give HIV to someone else.  The study involves up to 11-18 half hour scheduled clinic visits over 8-months. Eligible participants will receive up to $975 for study completion.

While it is great that HIV treatments are prolonging the lives of those with HIV it is time we make AIDS history. If you agree and would be interested in learning more, please contact the Fenway Institute at 617.927.6450 or email bethechange@fenwayhealth.org.
