I don’t do this often, but this is important.
I’m working with The Global Fund on a campaign which we hope will finally prevent mothers infected with HIV from passing the disease on to their children.
Over 430,000 children every year are infected by HIV and live short, painful lives. Yet this is entirely preventable. The treatments already exist, we just need governments to ensure mothers have access to these treatments. They wont do that unless you sign this petition telling them that you support this.
So please spend 1 minute of your time to sign the petition to support the Born HIV Free campaign.
Spending 1 minute to prevent children being infected with HIV at the beginning of their lives is probably the second best thing you can do today. The best is helping persuade others to sign up through your blog, Facebook profiles or whatever other resources are available to you.
