This World AIDS Day, the news is sobering -- the epidemic continues to spread in every region of the world. The number of people living with HIV globally has reached its highest level with close to 40 million people, up from 36.6 million in 2002. The steepest increases in HIV infections occurred in East Asia, Eastern Europe and Central Asia over the past two years.

The number of women living with HIV is on the rise in every region. Today the face of AIDS is increasingly young and female. This has profound implications—we will not be able to stop this epidemic unless we put women at the heart of the response to AIDS.

Prevention methods such as the “ABC” approach – Abstinence, Be faithful, and use Condoms – are good but not enough to protect women where gender inequality is pervasive. We must ensure that women can choose marriage, to decide when and with whom they have sex, and to successfully negotiate condom use.

At least the last couple.  I remember seeing that The Corrs played (as they have since then) back in 01 WAD benefit concert.

A quick search on google leads to it starting back in '88 "Join The Worldwide Effort"

I remember several years back that there was a World Aids day unless I'm confusinf it with something else. Mostly because one of the American soap operas did a big thing about it every year. In the form of a fundraising event within the show where not only did they spotlight the actors other talents like singing and dancing but they did some education

I guess things like that became less important to them as time went by :(

Otherwise it really hasn't been mentioned except as maybe part of the info crawl at teh botom of the screen during the news.

Well last year they did have a big benefit for it.  http://www.netaid.org/  This had a mega-"Live Aid" kind of feel to it as a they had a massive concert.  Everyone from U2 to The Corrs to Beyonce to Queen to...well you get the picture, took part in a several hour long concert which aired on several networks (MTV, VH1, [I think WGN]...and the internet [which up until they redid their site a little while ago you could still watch the stream of it].  The name was Nelson Mandel's prisoner number (I forgot sorry) as he was the one who started it.  (I think there was another reason why which I also have forgotten.  Sorry.  sue me.  :hehe:)


This is another project Bono has helped start/create and has been promoting it very well across the globe and media.
