Buyers' Club List, December 2005

AIDS Treatment News publishes a buyers' club list each December. For a short overview and introduction to the meaning, history, and services of these organizations, see AIDS Treatment News #309, December 18, 1998.

All the organizations listed below are nonprofit. Most can provide products by mail order. Most have fact sheets or other information, and some have a nutritionist or other expert available at certain times to answer questions. Some offer financial assistance with purchases if necessary. Most are open to the public, but some require membership. Call ahead for current information.
