Body Positive Marks a New Era With Continued Commitment and a New Name: The Southwest Center for HIV/AIDS
Date:5/18/2008

Arizona is Home to the Only HIV/AIDS Service Organization in the United States to Combine Research, Prevention/Education and Wellness Under one

Roof

PHOENIX, May 18 /PRNewswire/ -- In order to reflect its expanding reach and awareness, Body Positive christened its new name on Saturday, May 17, at "Night for Life," the organization's annual gala fundraiser. Visionaries in the field -- activists, doctors and researchers -- were also among the guests that gathered at the Camelback Inn to celebrate nearly two decades of being at the forefront of the HIV/AIDS pandemic in Arizona as Body Positive, founded in 1990 by Kirk Baxter. The agency's new name, Southwest Center for HIV/AIDS, marks a new era of the organization's expanded outreach and continued commitment to building awareness locally and regionally.

The vanguard HIV/AIDS organization in the desert Southwest region, Southwest Center for HIV/AIDS, continues to pave the way for research, prevention, education and wellness for people affected by HIV/AIDS. In an effort to combat this devastating disease, the Southwest Center for HIV/AIDS has created broad awareness, and its leading-edge clinical trial program has worked to bring 26 of 28 Food and Drug Administration-approved drugs to the market to treat this devastating disease. It is the only HIV/AIDS nonprofit organization that delivers all three services in what it coins as an "individual health, individual help" model.

"The Southwest Center for HIV/AIDS provides the public with knowledge to prevent this disease while providing critical resources to help individuals live long and well with HIV," said Carol Poore, president and CEO of the Southwest Center for HIV/AIDS. "Since its inception, the organization has grown in scope to address the shift in reported cases of HIV/AIDS that have erupted among minority women, adult men as well as youth."
