    The current Spotlight on the NPIN Internet site highlights the "XIII International AIDS Conference." It features relevant publications, news, and links to sites relating to the conference, which will be held in Durban, South Africa from July 9-14, 2000.

    The Web site highlighting the conference, Now More Than Ever: Workplace Solutions for HIV and AIDS, September 7 - 8, 2000, Washington, D.C., was launched and can be viewed at
    http://www.brta-lrta.org/conference2000/. The two-day event, sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and its national business and labor partners, will be an information- packed conference where many of the country's HIV workplace leaders will present fresh, helpful perspectives on workplace issues.

    CDC announces the availability of the Program Announcement 00100: Community-Based Strategies to Increase HIV Testing of Persons at High Risk in Communities of Color.
