Under culture, shouldn't there be a link to bugchasing?

Agree. It certainly should be added as it is part of the AIDS culture. (talk) 21:17, 30 July 2008 (UTC)
Sorry, but that doesn't belong here. Look at the template. It's not an anti-gay crusade. OrangeMarlin Talk• Contributions 22:16, 30 July 2008 (UTC)
It's a potentially notable phenomenon, or at least has drawn some coverage in reliable sources. But the bottom line is that the bugchasing article is a mess - poorly sourced, loaded with OR, filled with external linkspam, etc. Why not spend the effort on cleaning up and improving the bugchasing article and link it from here once it reaches a minimal level of quality? This template is already huge, so we should be at least a little selective about adding to it. MastCell Talk 22:30, 30 July 2008 (UTC)
It's a cultural phenomena, and I would doubt the notability. I'm not sure it belongs in what can be described as academic treatments of AIDS. The template could add lots of random stuff if we're not careful. OrangeMarlin Talk• Contributions 22:32, 30 July 2008 (UTC)
What, you mean like the Group for the Scientific Reappraisal of the HIV-AIDS Hypothesis and HIV-positive fictional characters? :) MastCell Talk 22:35, 30 July 2008 (UTC)
I agree that the bugchasing article is not in good shape. Perhaps when/if it is brought up to a better standard, a link to said article could be added to the template. We might want to establish a specific criteria for how and when that is achieved. Regardless, it has been established that bugchasing is indeed a cultural phenomenon and therefore I believe it fits.

In the cultural section, but I'd have to be convinced. And to MastCell. :P OrangeMarlin Talk• Contributions 23:06, 30 July 2008 (UTC)
It needs to be added. The way to combat ignorance is with awareness. (talk) 22:19, 29 September 2008 (UTC)

Bottom of this template - other templates[edit]

At the bottom of this template there are links to other templates. The presentation is not good because it is not obvious where the links will go. Also while the templates are related I do not feel that they should be in this template because they are supercategories in which HIV is a member, but which are not about HIV specifically. Is there any objection to my removing all of these? Blue Rasberry (talk) 16:21, 3 November 2011 (UTC)

Perth group[edit]

The Perth Group page has been rewritten top to bottom today and has much better sourcing and appropriate weight. Anyone think there's a space in the template, and where would it go? Should there be an AIDS denialism section, or perhaps template:AIDS denialism? WLU (t) (c) Wikipedia's rules:simple/complex 01:08, 20 April 2012 (UTC)

How are HIV memorial and notable HIV-focused art projects not HIV and AIDS related?[edit]

Prokaryotes removed these three links and I'm not really sure why as they seem completely HIV & AIDS related, particularly the first two which are awareness-raising projects.

Bringing up for discussion. Mabalu (talk) 09:06, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

These are projects, not topics and i don't think it makes sense to add a handful of random selected projects to outline the topics of HIV/AIDS. There are more projects in the template though. Projects belong into a new article for listing of HIV/AIDS related projects, but are not within the scope of outlining the topic. The template could then get a link to the project listing. --prokaryotes (talk) 09:09, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
