What's AIDS got to do with it?
by David Feinberg
Why did POZ pick me to write the sex column? I am a self-described guilty AIDS victim who has written two admittedly autobiographical novels about a sex-crazed homo, but is that enough?

by Sean Strub
Hope and despair. Excitement and depression. Greed and generosity. Anger and gratitude. Fear and courage. That about sums up AIDS, doesn’t it? But it is not that black and white. The fight against AIDS has been made of thousands small steps forward and thousands of small steps backward. POZ intends to be one of the steps forward, to provide a better understanding of the disease and its impact on our society.

HIV Standard of Care
This HIV Standard of Care chart is reproduced from ACT UP/Philadelphia's HIV Standard of Care published in May, 1993. This is the fourth version with a fifth version expected soon. This chart is meant as a minimum standard of care for adults (children require a different standard) who are HIV positive -- a minimum level by which patients can determine and measure the quality of their care. HIV Standards of Care differ by region, treatment philosophy and patient population.  POZ will present different Standards of Care in future issues.
