OneWorld, the online human rights and sustainable development network, today
announced the launch of a new multimedia web portal on HIV/AIDS.
AIDSchannel.org, www.aidschannel.org, goes live to coincide with World AIDS
Day (1 December 2001). The site will be edited from OneWorld Africa centre
in Zambia.

AIDSchannel.org launches with a partnership of over 100 leading aid
agencies, human rights and campaign groups worldwide. The site aims to
promote understanding, knowledge sharing and action on AIDS as a
development, social, economic and human rights issue.

Across the world, AIDS claims the lives of nearly 8,000 people every day.
The epidemic has killed almost 25 million people since the first officially
recorded case 20 years ago and 40 million people are currently living with
HIV/AIDS.

"AIDSchannel.org uses the Internet to bring together civil society from all
continents to help limit the human suffering and devastation of HIV/AIDS,"
said Priscilla Jere, director of OneWorld Africa. "OneWorld invites everyone
with access to the web
to join us online and connect to fight the global AIDS crisis."

AIDSchannel.org carries stories and information from around the world in one
of the most comprehensive spaces on the web on  HIV/AIDS. Channel features
include news, campaign actions, opinion pieces by leading commentators,
in-depth analysis, events listings, a beginner's guide to HIV/AIDS and a
dedicated search facility on AIDS.

AIDSchannel.org is a global platform for a global issue. The OneWorld
partners involved in the site share a particular concern to promote the
voices and concerns of people in developing countries. It is these
experiences of AIDS and these views on what should be done to fight the AIDS
epidemic that must be more widely heard.
