I have raised with concern that Baseline receives funding through advertising to help with it costs. TCell provides the information free without additional funding, though this has been sought and yet to be received.

Some 31,000 people have visited TCell website this year alone and we thank you and for those who have needed to access the information we provide. We are also grateful for the responses received so far upon the TCell survey which is still open for people to comment http://tcell.org.uk/forums/tcellorguk-user-survey< .

The work TCell and it volunteers brings, is that of a missed opportunity within the lives of people living with HIV/AIDS and brings together the life experiences of those living with HIV/AIDS and an accumulative information to support us all, TCell has no commercial gain from this venture but to empower and inform others.

Thank you.

Kevin
