World Aids Day 2011

Today is World AIDS Day.  In the 30 years since scientists first identified the virus in 1981, HIV/AIDS has claimed the lives of over 25 million people.  But thanks to the extraordinary efforts of political leaders, intenrational activists, and — most of all — generous supporters like you, the struggle against HIV/AIDS has reached a turning point.  For the first time, the number of individuals infected each year is decreasing, and we know we can beat this terrible disease.
