Since 1990, Positively Aware has been the most trusted source of HIV treatment news. It is the only HIV/AIDS treatment journal published by a 501(c)3 not-for-profit AIDS service organization (ASO)—Test Positive Aware Network (TPAN) in Chicago.

Positively Aware provides accurate, up-to-date treatment information for people living with HIV/AIDS and their caregivers. It covers, in detail, all of the most important medical conferences—CROI, ICAAC, and the International AIDS Conference. The magazine serves as an educational tool for many HIV caregivers and helps to provide their clients with the best treatment information available. And Positively Aware is read by influential HIV researchers and policy makers.
