We Are Calling for an AIDS-free Generation!      

Two weeks ago, Secretary of State Clinton made a profound speech highlighting a vision that's on the horizon . . . an AIDS-free generation. Science has given us a way to end the AIDS crisis because, as we now know, treatment not only saves lives but has been shown to reduce the risk of HIV transmission by 96%. It also reduces the likelihood of active TB, the biggest killer of people with AIDS, by 84%. In combination with other methods, we can halt HIV infections and AIDS deaths. 

Now we must talk about how the U.S. will play a leading role. 

With World AIDS Day coming on December 1, now is the time when President Obama can voice his leadership for the end of AIDS. One move the president could make is to call for the PEPFAR program (the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief) to put several million more people on AIDS treatment by the end of next year.
We need your voice. Make a call to the White House!
