Dear Shan,

As we honor the 20th anniversary of World AIDS Day this week, 2 million children and young adults under the age of 15 are now living with HIV/AIDS. Hundreds of thousands will die unless we do everything in our power to ensure that they live productive and fulfilling lives with the medicine they require.

The Clinton HIV/AIDS Initiative has been responding to the global pandemic since 2002. By the end of this year, in partnership with the international drug purchasing entity UNITAID, we will have helped more than 173,000 kids in 33 countries receive the care and treatment they need to survive.

Here are some results we've helped achieve this year in Zambia:
Nearly tripled the number of infants tested for HIV.
Nearly doubled the number of infant HIV testing facilities.
Increased the number of health care workers able to treat children by more than 20 percent.
With your support, we have accomplished a great deal, but we must continue our efforts to fulfill our promise and give all children all over the world a better tomorrow.

I encourage you to learn more about our HIV/AIDS program today.


Bill Clinton
