Faith and Civil Society Leaders Call for Truth and Leadership in U.S. HIV Prevention Efforts

WASHINGTON, Nov. 20 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following is being released by Center for Health & Gender Equity:

WHAT: World AIDS Day Audio Media Conference

WHEN:

Tuesday, November 25, 2008

11:00 a.m. EST

Call-in number: 1-800-949-8476

RSVP strongly encouraged: https://cc.readytalk.com/r/1xe41i2yre8rs

WHY: With new HIV infections outpacing the number of people newly put on treatment worldwide, advocates are calling on the United States this World AIDS Day to prioritize effective prevention alongside treatment and care.

Given the recent election, the world is hopeful that U.S. leadership will promote human rights and equality in U.S. HIV prevention efforts. This means designing policies and programs based on evidence - rather than ideology - that acknowledge the varied needs of groups at increased risk of infection.

"Our policies must reflect the realities of people's lives," said Rev. William G. Sinkford. "The choice of 'abstinence' is a luxury available only to those who have complete control over their own bodies, and we know thatmany women and youth in the U.S. and developing world do not have this luxury."

On December 1, advocates of diverse faiths and beliefs will gather for a World AIDS Day Interfaith Service in Washington, D.C. This pre-service media audio conference will highlight the prevention needs of communities worldwide, and discuss how U.S. leadership can chart the course for a sustainable and cost-effective response to the global pandemic.
