Community responses to mainstream US magazine supporting HIV denialists

The March 2006 issue of influential and respected US-based Harper’s Magazine contained an article titled Out of Control, AIDS and the Corruption of Medical Science by the well-known AIDS denialist, Celia Farber. The article essentially repeats that extensively repeats UC Berkeley virologist Peter Duesberg’s discredited theory that HIV does not cause AIDS. Harper’s is (or was) a serious magazine read by intelligent people, so it’s of significant concern that they published such an article.

A broad community supported website promptly collected and published online a useful collection of articles presenting the scientific evidence that HIV is the cause of AIDS, and that benefits of antiretroviral drugs (ARVs) outweigh the risks. The website was created by people engaged in the worldwide struggle against HIV/AIDS and is an excellent resource.
