AEGiS Health, Human Rights and Human Services Award

Wynn Wagner, a retired archbishop in the Old Catholic Church, a internationally known computer software developer, writer and philanthropist has been a supporter of AEGiS for over twenty years both in providing software development as well as technical computer and financial support. He also wrote “Day One” to assist those who have just found out they are HIV positive. “Day One” is part of the introductory page of AEGiS and is the most popular document on the website and one of the most read documents in the world on HIV/AIDS.

AEGiS, the AIDS Education Global Information System is a non-profit, user-supported, on-line information resource. It is the single most comprehensive source of HIV/AIDS information in the world. With millions of documents dealing with HIV/AIDS, it is one of the largest online websites of any kind.

Here is the text that accompanied the award:

Before computers there was your creation of OPUS- Computer Based Conversations System! And as soon as HIV/AIDS reared its ugly head you were there providing funding for its victims and research through your inventions taking no personal profit from your work!

Because of your pioneering efforts AEGiS is proud to present to you the AEGiS Health, Human Rights and Human Services Award. This is given to you as you have been a standard bearer for our work here at AEGiS over many years.

2012 AEGiS Health, Human Rights and Humanitarian AwardYou, from the very beginning mentored, our Founder in her efforts to develop what has become one of the largest data bases of information regarding HIV/AIDS. That data base has served millions over the decades of the pandemic. An integral part of that data base was your introductory pages to the website entitled “Day One”. These pages have served to guide and inspire the newly infected for many years.

You have authored much over the years. But the truly remarkable thing is that your informational advice has been coupled with spiritual encouragement and hope. Science and Spirit have worked so well in your gifts to us.

Your efforts have also been very practical. You’ve assisted AEGiS in its programming, assisted others in donating to AEGiS and have become the largest single non-corporate donor to our efforts.

 It is with great pleasure that we recognize the great guiding light you have been for us and the HIV/AIDS community in general.
