SOCIAL MEDIA TOOLKIT
2011 marks the 30th anniversary of the discovery of HIV/AIDS. We have the potential to finally turn the tide on AIDS and to get to a point, by 2015, where the beginning of the end of AIDS is in sight. Now more than ever, we must recommit ourselves to the fight against HIV and to achieving specific, measurable goals. By 2015, we want to see a world in which: 1. No child is born with HIV 2. 15 million people are accessing AIDS treatment 3. The rate of new HIV infections is drastically reduced Beginning on December 1st, World AIDS Day, ONE and (RED) invite you to join the fight for an AIDS Free Generation by 2015. Together, we can let the world know that the elimination of mother to child transmission of HIV is within our grasp and we can help start the beginning of the end of AIDS. Here are a few ways you can helpâ€Ś

Download Progress. Proof. Promise. The Beginning of the End of AIDS Thirty years ago, the first cases of a new virus, HIV, and the disease it caused, AIDS, were discovered. The disease quickly reached pandemic proportions, sweeping across Africa and other parts of the world. For many years, to be diagnosed with HIV was an almost-certain death sentence. Today, thanks to the political will of leaders from around the world—including in Africa—6.6 million people are the proof that life-saving programs like PEPFAR and the Global Fund really work.
