About TheBodyPro

Founded in 2002, TheBodyPro exists to inform and support the HIV workforce -- the vast constellation of people working on the front lines of HIV education, prevention, care, and services. Whether you're a physician or a case manager; a registered nurse or a licensed social worker; a medical technician or a therapist; we're here to provide you with up-to-date information, valuable perspectives, and authentic professional voices.

We do this by:

  • Publishing accurate, responsible reporting and analysis on relevant scientific, clinical, and policy developments in HIV/AIDS and related fields.
  • Providing a platform for members of the HIV workforce to share insightful stories and perspectives.
  • Partnering with HIV care providers and professional organizations to strengthen our responses to the HIV epidemic.

TheBodyPro and its sibling site for the broader HIV community, TheBody, are a part of Remedy Health Media, a leading digital health platform that empowers patients and caregivers to achieve better health.
