RIDGEFIELD, Conn. Drug maker Boehringer Ingelheim and the Latino Commission on AIDS have launched a website targeted at Latinos living with HIV, the two announced Thursday.
The website, MenteCuerpoHAART.com, is a Spanish-language version of an already existing English-language version, MindBodyHAART.com. The site is designed to help patients, their families and doctors understand issues affecting health care and treatment of HIV and find resources on prescribed medications and clinical trials, and communicate with medical providers.
“We face many health challenges in our communities,” Latino Commission on AIDS president Guillermo Chacon said. “It is important that we respond to the crisis of HIV/AIDS, perpetuated by the stigma, poverty, immigration status, fear, access to health care and barriers related to language.”
