I was recently pointed in the direction of a new initiative exploiting the growing popularity of places like YouTube and other online video sites.

Basically, talking heads and videos are a lot more striking than simple websites. The dissidents have (as usual) got there first with a couple of films posted online and/or in rare public viewings. This group of people have got together to create a series of counter-videos to either explain the science and medicine behind HIV and AIDS, or to counter specific dissident points.

Intentionally, their videos are titled to draw in dissidents, and apparently it works rather well :o)

This kind of work is long-overdue and should be applauded. As with this site and AIDSTruth, the work is pretty much done as a hobby, but what I've seen so far looks pretty good. Certainly a better job than I could have done!

Hi Nick,

Sorry to send this as a comment, but I couldn't find a contact e-mail on your blog.

The National Press Foundation in collaboration with the International AIDS Society is holding a training session for 50 international journalists on covering HIV/AIDS in Sydney, Australia. The program coincides with the IAS’s 4th annual conference on HIV Pathogenesis, Treatment and Prevention. We’ll be writing about it on our new blog, The NPF Newsbag ( I’ll be posting resources from our speakers’ sessions and will be inviting some of our participating journalists to guest blog. Since you also blog on HIV/AIDS related subjects, I thought you might be interested seeing what we’ll be posting in the next couple weeks. Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can provide you with any information from here in Sydney.
