Felipe Calderon Hinojosa called on global leaders to focus attention and resources on the global AIDS crisis, including the often overlooked, but growing, pandemic in Latin America," said Tina Hoff, Vice President and Director of Media Partnerships at the Kaiser Family Foundation, which is the Secretariat for the Global Media AIDS Initiative. "This commitment by Latin American broadcasters is an important step toward motivating social change and delivering life-saving information to young people across the region."
