Knowledge is POWER. Accurate and timely information is a basic element of knowledge and is essential to those who are working to end the HIV/AIDS epidemic. This epidemic has created more published literature than any other disease in history, and advances in research and therapy have been extraordinary. Consequently, keeping up with the most current information can be extremely challenging. In an effort to combat the threat of AIDS, healthcare facilities have mounted an intensive education and training effort to ensure that all healthcare workers know and follow the recommended measures to prevent the transmission of HIV, and that they are given the tools to pass this vital information on to others.
