Spanish-language HIV site for women launches with pharma support
Several pharmas are lending their support to a new Spanish-language version of a Web site that educates women about HIV and AIDS. The Spanish version of www.TheWellProject.org includes information about treatments, including details about antiretroviral medications and their side effects, resources for managing HIV, and public policy updates that may impact women with HIV. According to the Well Project, Latinas represent 21% of people who are diagnosed with HIV/AIDS in the United States. This number is disproportionate to their percentage of the overall population. In addition to adding Spanish content, there are also plans to eventually translate the content into other languages, including Cantonese, French, and Russian. Pharmas that sponsor the site include Pfizer, Roche, and Bristol-Myers Squibb.
