World AIDS Day 2012 - Getting to Zero

World AIDS Day 2012 - Getting to Zero | IntegrAid | Scoop.it

30 November 2012 – United Nations officials are marking World AIDS Day with a call for building on recent successes and pressing ahead to get to zero – zero new HIV infections, zero discrimination and zero AIDS-related deaths – by 2015.

 

“On this World AIDS Day, let us commit to build on and amplify the encouraging successes of recent years to consign HIV/AIDS to the pages of history,” Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said in his message for the Day, observed annually on 1 December.

 

The World AIDS Day Report for 2012, he noted, reveals significant progress in preventing and treating HIV/AIDS in the past two years. The number of people accessing life-saving treatment rose by 60 per cent and new infections have fallen by half in 25 countries – 13 of them in sub-Saharan Africa.

 

In addition, AIDS-related deaths have dropped by a quarter since 2005, according to the report, published by the Joint UN Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS).

Join (RED) For World AIDS Day

Join (RED) For World AIDS Day | IntegrAid | Scoop.it

Product Red, styled as (PRODUCT) RED, is a brand licensed to partner companies such as Nike, American Express (UK), Apple Inc., Starbucks,Converse, Bugaboo, Penguin Classics (UK & International), Gap, Emporio Armani, Hallmark (US), Dell, SAP and Beats Electronics (Beats by Dr. Dre).

 

The concept was founded in 2006 by U2 frontman and activist, Bono, together with Bobby Shriver of the ONE/DATA; the pair sought to engage the private sector for the purpose of raising awareness and funds to help eliminate HIV/AIDS in Africa. The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria is a recipient of (RED) money.

 

As part of a new business model, developed in partnership with Wolff Olins, each partner company creates a product with the Product Red logo.[1] In return for the opportunity to increase revenue through the Product Red license, a percentage of the profit gained by each partner is donated to the Global Fund.[2][dead link] As Product Red is a private company, a portion of the contributions received from the partner brands is assigned as profit. Such an amalgamation of humanitarian aid and for-profit businesses is one example of "ethical consumerism.

ONE | International | Fighting Extreme Poverty and Preventable Disease

ONE | International | Fighting Extreme Poverty and Preventable Disease | IntegrAid | Scoop.it
ONE is a grassroots campaign of more than 3 million people committed to the fight against extreme poverty and preventable diseases.

 

ONE is a grassroots advocacy and campaigning organization that fights extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa, by raising public awareness and pressuring political leaders to support smart and effective policies and programs that are saving lives, helping to put kids in school and improving futures.


ONE achieves change through advocacy. We hold world leaders to account for the commitments they've made to fight extreme poverty, and we campaign for better development policies, more effective aid and trade reform. We also support greater democracy, accountability and transparency to ensure policies to beat poverty are implemented effectively. ONE is not a grant-making organization and we do not solicit funding from the general public. As we have always said, at ONE, 'we're not asking for your money, we're asking for your voice.
