Date:6/4/2008

tion and awareness has become an integral part of Viacom's culture, and we are committed to continuing to educate our audiences about how to protect themselves, as well as providing the information and understanding to wipe out the devastating stigma that fosters the spread of the disease. It is a great privilege and honor to receive this recognition from the GBC."

Through its ongoing efforts to educate audiences about HIV/AIDS, Viacom and all its divisions have leveraged the extensive international reach of its media platforms and brands to connect with those most at risk for contracting the disease, young people. Campaigns such as MTV Networks International's Staying Alive, MTV's It's Your (Sex) Life and BET's Rap-It-Up program, encourage viewers to take action by getting tested for HIV and practicing safe sex. Similarly, digital initiatives, like mtvU's new video game, POSorNOT.com, reaches audiences online to challenge stereotypes and break down the barriers that may prevent people from talking openly about HIV/AIDS.

The GBC is presenting nine Awards for Business Excellence at its annual dinner in New York. Instituted in 1988, the GBC Awards for Business Excellence recognize and honor outstanding private sector companies for their help in preventing HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon will attend this year's dinner, which will be hosted by Nicholas Kristof. Grammy Award-winning violinist, Miri Ben-Ari will perform.
