ONE and (RED) Host Panel Discussion on 'the Beginning of the End of AIDS'

President Obama, President Bush, President Clinton, President Kikwete of Tanzania, Sen. Rubio and Rep. Barbara Lee, Bono, Alicia Keys and More Come Together for World AIDS Day Event at GW Campus

 

What:        To mark World AIDS Day 2011, ONE and (RED) are hosting a high-level panel discussion on reaching “the beginning of the end of AIDS”. Major progress has been made in the last 10 years in the fight against global AIDS thanks in large part to US leadership, and now new scientific discoveries hold great promise for reducing infection rates. If the world comes together over the next few years, we could finally see the beginning of the end of the AIDS pandemic, but only if a broad coalition – government and activists, business and faith leaders – comes together to build on the progress already made.

Through a partnership with YouTube, the event will be streamed live on ONE’s official YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/theonecampaign. The panelists will respond to questions from a moderator, as well as to a selection of questions submitted by citizens on YouTube.

Who:         President Barack Obama
President George W. Bush (via satellite in Tanzania)
President Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete of Tanzania (via satellite in Tanzania)
