Summary: Quick reference for telephone information.
For AIDS information (such as where to get tested, transmission, symptoms, news stories, or local AIDS organizations), try 1-800-CDC-INFO (1-800-232-4636), toll-free 24 hours a day in English or Spanish; when asked, select option ’1′ to reach a person for health information. Trained operators can answer many questions using an extensive database. Usually you can reach an operator immediately, unless many people are calling due recent media coverage of AIDS or other health concerns.
To find a local AIDS specialist physician, try the “Find a Provider in Your Area” link at the American Academy of HIV Medicine, http://www.aahivm.org
For an HIV and AIDS treatment hotline, try Project Inform, 800-822-7422, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Pacific time Monday through Friday. You may need to wait as the volunteers are helping other callers.
For many more AIDS hotlines, search for “HIV hotlines” (preferably with the quotation marks) on Google or another search engine.
