20 years ago this week, the CDC published its first little notice on it's Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report about a strange outbreak of killer pneumonia striking homosexual men - th culprit behind that was what was later discovered to be HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.

In light of this "anniversary", CNN has a little info thing on its website

"AIDS - 20 years of an epedemic"

that gives a good overview about what the current research and treatment stand on HIV/AIDS is. So in case you need a little brush up about recent developments, check it out.

In addition, as usual, the Center for Disease Control has lots of info on demographics, prevention and everything else, too. Check out:

"Divisions of HIV/AIDS Prevention - Fact Sheet Overview"
