we've got signatures, help us get to 8,000 by November 13, 2008
December 1 was World AIDS Day, yet children with HIV/AIDS continue to be ignored across the globe. But you can help. Join the movement to prevent pediatric AIDS.
Ninety percent of the 2.3 million HIV-positive children living around the world contracted HIV from their mothers in the womb, at birth, or while breast-feeding.
There are simple and effective medicines available to significantly reduce the likelihood that a mother will pass HIV onto her baby. Unfortunately, this lifesaving care is not reaching most women and children in resource-poor countries. As a consequence, 1,500 children contract HIV every day.
This is simply unacceptable. As a global community, we must do more to help HIV-positive moms and their infants. Congress must commit resources and expand services to prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV.
Don’t let kids get left behind in the fight against HIV/AIDS. Tell Congress to protect children on World AIDS Day and take action to prevent pediatric AIDS. Send your message today!
