TODAY is World AIDS Day. Metafilter is making HIV stuff its only focus today, and people have posted a bunch of interesting links. Well worth checking out.
The discussion of the role of the drug companies and the cost of anti-HIV meds has only just begun (at 7:30 EST), but there are already some good links there, and it's bound to heat up as the day goes on. Lots of strong opinions on that one. Also a nice link to a discussion of the origins of AIDS, and some clickable maps from the BBC showing the state of people with HIV around the world.
