Notices to Readers National AIDS Information Clearinghouse

The National AIDS Information Clearinghouse is a comprehensive information service for persons working with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). As a service of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Public Health Service, CDC, the Clearinghouse collects, classifies, and distributes up-to-date information and provides expert reference assistance to HIV- and AIDS-prevention professionals. The Clearinghouse maintains information data bases that are accessed by reference specialists on request. The data bases contain descriptions of greater than 12,000 organizations that provide HIV- and AIDS-related services and resources and greater than 6000 AIDS-related educational materials. Reference specialists also have access to the AIDS School Health Education Database (produced by CDC's Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, Division of Adolescent and School Health), which describes resources for education of children and youth about HIV infection and AIDS. A funding database, now under development, will provide information on funding opportunities for community-based HIV and AIDS service organizations. The Clearinghouse is a direct source of materials to help professionals keep up to date on scientific data and guidelines issued by CDC. The Clearinghouse distributes selected HIV/AIDS reprints from the MMWR and all issues of CDC's HIV/AIDS Surveillance. Educational materials for use by the general public, including all brochures and posters from the "America Responds to AIDS" program, are also available. All Clearinghouse services are free and can be reached at (800) 458-5231. The Clearinghouse has Spanish-speaking staff, TTY/TDD access ((800) 243-7012), and an international telephone line ((301) 217-0023). The Clearinghouse also operates the AIDS Clinical Trials Information Service (ACTIS) to provide current information on federally and privately sponsored clinical trials on HIV/AIDS. ACTIS is sponsored by CDC, the Food and Drug Administration, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, National Institutes of Health, and the National Library of Medicine. ACTIS can be reached through the Clearinghouse or by dialing (800) TRIALS-A ((800) 874-2572).
