NEW YORK, Dec. 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today on World AIDS Day, Gay Men's Health Crisis (GMHC) is reaffirming its commitment to continue helping diverse groups disproportionately affected by HIV and AIDS, including people struggling with crystal methamphetamine use. GMHC is announcing an innovative, interactive crystal methamphetamine resource, www.MyMethLife.org, which aims to curb the rampant spread of this disease in this underserved community. The organization is also launching a re-designed, easy-to-navigate Web site, www.GMHC.org, complete with new resources for people seeking HIV services such as testing, treatment, counseling, prevention education and other care.

Love Life.'"
