Yesterday, the Pembroke Pines Charter High School faculty and student body gathered outside to rally in support of ONE’s fight to ensure that no child is born with HIV by 2015. More than 200 students showed up with signs and flags to help get the message across, all while donning ONE shirts.
During the event, many of the students took some time to record their ONE wish for World AIDS Day. Check out what they had to say and be sure to tweet your ONE wish this week!
Overall, our World AIDS Day event helped to highlight the success of proven, effective efforts to save lives in Africa — efforts that have helped nearly 5 million Africans with HIV/AIDS access antiretroviral treatment, and have helped 930,000 pregnant women access the HIV medicine that prevents passage of the infection to their babies.
