December 1 is World AIDS Day. On this day, we stand in solidarity with the 78 million infected with HIV, and we remember the 35 million who have died from AIDS-related illnesses since the disease emerged.
SAVE has vowed to fight next year to end policies which criminalize and stigmatize HIV+ Americans. Can we count on you to stand with us? Add your name in support of HIV/AIDS decriminalization and aid for patients here. >>
For years, South Florida has had one of the highest rates of infection in the U.S. Both for those living with HIV, as well as for the health of those not infected, it is our moral imperative to end policies which only aid in HIV's spread and make life even more difficult for sufferers.
Access to treatment is half of the equation. Nowadays, HIV+ Americans with health insurance can expect a similar life expectancy to the uninfected. We will fight tooth and nail to expand access and affordability of treatments and insurance coverage for HIV+ Americans in need.
The other half of the equation is fighting policies which force HIV+ Americans into the shadows. Experts lay the blame of the HIV's continued spread on policies that criminalize and stigmatize HIV+ Americans. We have a responsibility to future generations to change this.
SAVE is leading a fight to revolutionize how Florida treats HIV+ people and how it works to stop HIV's spread. Can we count on you to stand with us? Add your name in support of HIV/AIDS decriminalization and access to treatment here. >>
This World AIDS Day, we must recommit to the fight to end HIV's spread. Thank you for your support.
