(RED), Johnson & Johnson Team Up to Support Global Fund

June 11, 2013

"[T]hankfully, with the incredible advances in HIV/AIDS treatment, prevention of mother-to-child transmission is real today and is helping the world take giant steps towards achieving an AIDS-Free Generation. But still, 900 babies are born every day with HIV," (RED) CEO Deborah Dugan writes in the Huffington Post's "The Big Push" blog. "(RED) and the Global Fund [to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria] envision a world in which no baby is born with HIV, and every mother has the opportunity to help her child thrive," she continues, adding, "But real impact requires action. And money." She notes, "Starting today, a new partnership with Johnson & Johnson means every time someone 'Likes', 'Tweets' or 'Pins' a (RED) infographic, Johnson & Johnson will donate $1 to the Global Fund, up to $100,000. Every cent from that donation will help ensure that HIV+ mothers in Africa have the tools they need to deliver healthy babies." Dugan concludes, "By acting now, and by acting collectively, our chances of helping deliver an AIDS-Free Generation are infinitely greater" (6/10).
