HIV/AIDS Resources for Teenagers

If you have HIV or are concerned about how you can get HIV, the Internet can be a great place to answer your questions as long as you are careful about the types of information you read. Not all sites have good information, but we’ll help you sort out what you can use.

Dulcinea's Insight

  • Some questions are embarrassing to ask in person. The Web can be a great place to ask your health-related questions privately and, often, anonymously.
  • It’s important to make sure that the information you read about health issues is accurate. The sites listed here are all trustworthy but there are many more sites out there: some are reliable, some are biased, and some are just plain wrong. Check out the findingDulcinea Health Web Guide for a section on figuring out whether you can trust a particular site. One tip: government (usually indicated with a “.gov” at the end of the Web address) and nonprofit (“.org”) organizations will usually have credible information.
