Did you know that World AIDS Day is coming up on Friday, December 1st? 25 years on, the AIDS crisis continues to grow at a frightening pace — over 38 million people around the world currently live with the virus and millions more will become infected this year

Please don’t delay! The goal is to deliver 25,000 letters to President Bush and the new Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, by World AIDS Day.
AIDS is rapidly becoming a global women’s epidemic due to social and biological factors that make women far more vulnerable to the virus than men. More than half of all people living with HIV/AIDS today are women and, in the hardest hit countries, five young women are infected for every one young man.
Experts now agree that the best way to fight AIDS is to empower women around the world to protect themselves.
Join me in calling on Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to commit the U.S. to working to end violence against women, promote gender equity, and ensure universal access to prevention, treatment and support for women and girls living with or threatened by HIV/AIDS before it is too late.

World leaders and public health advocates are now calling for changes in the way societies treat women and girls. It is time for the U.S. to do the same.
