HIV exists also in virtual world Second Life, if the presence of a HIV Prevention and Care center is anything to go by. And lauded thatshould be too. While you and I may be playing Second Life for free, it's big bucks being spent on education and outreach. The project runs from 1st Octiober 2008 to 31st March 2010.

The Alliance Library System (ALS) is pleased to announce that the National Library of Medicine has awarded ALS a $60,000 grant for a project entitled "AIDS Information and Outreach in the Virtual World of Second Life." The project includes the creation of a new island with a community AIDS/HIV library/resource center. The resource center will provide information support and outreach to the Second Life community and beyond about AIDS/HIV and its prevention. The new island will also be home to a garden space where narratives about the AIDS/HIV experience can be shared through art, audio, video, poetry, essays, and more. The project runs from October 1, 2008 – March 31, 2010.
