Southern AIDS Living Quilt Raises Awareness at National HIV Summit
Date:11/21/2008

Women empower others by sharing personal stories of living with HIV/AIDS

WASHINGTON, Nov. 21 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- AIDS is the leading cause of death for African American women ages 25-34 today. HIV infections could be reduced by 30 percent per year if all HIV infected persons knew of their infection and adopted behavioral changes to limit the spread of the disease.

The Southern AIDS Living Quilt (www.livingquilt.org) was featured this week at the 2008 National Summit on HIV Diagnosis, Prevention and Access to Care in Washington, DC.

Complementing the summit's goals of increased awareness, prevention and treatment, the Living Quilt collects and shares video and audio stories from women on the front lines of the fight against the spread of HIV and AIDS. The Living Quilt highlights the need for routine testing, early diagnosis, and increased access to care for those living with HIV/AIDS in the South.

These powerful videos have been viewed more than 6,300 times view visitors from across the U.S. since the Southern AIDS Living Quilt's October launch, while more than one dozen new video "patches" have been recorded to add to the initial thirty three.

"Like this summit, the Living Quilt works to increase awareness and make an impact on those infected and those at risk," said Dr. Bambi Gaddist, Executive Director of the South Carolina HIV/AIDS Council. "While we have a long way to go, it's a sign that the status quo can change."

"This Quilt serves to empower, encourage and educate those most directly impacted by HIV and AIDS," said Evelyn Foust, Co-Chair of the Southern AIDS Coalition and AIDS and STD Director at the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services. "I urge wom
