December 1st is AIDS Day. I have been working with Chevron to remind people of the battle against this scourge and to infuse it with some optimism. We have launched a big campaign to talk about how mother-to-child transmission of HIV is being overcome in Africa.
Last year I wrote an ad whose headline was “AIDS is going to lose” and it became a bit of a rallying cry, especially at the Global AIDS conference in Washington earlier this year. This year we are trying to encourage people to share this battle and information about how the spread of the disease can be beaten with education, testing, care and support.
AIDS is strong, but together we are stronger. If you’d like to help spread the word, please visit this special site we’ve built.
