The library has a fantastic research guide on HIV and AIDS resources, with national, international, consumer, and clinical focal points.

The University of Michigan has a World AIDS Week Committee – visit their blog for events for the whole week, more information on the “Getting to Zero” theme that lasts through 2015, and more.

The official hashtags for the awareness campaign are  #waw12 and #wad12, and while you’re on Twitter, keep an eye on our Twitter stream, @mlibraryhealthy – our Outreach Librarian, Kate, has a ton of relevant resources and facts that she’s succinctly tweeting.
