Born HIV Free is a campaign endorsed by Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, the French First Lady, and it's aim is to end children being born with HIV by 2015.

All you need to do is sign the petition in the link below. All it takes is your name.

http://www.bornhivfree.org

here is the facebook page:

http://www.facebook.com/BornHIVFree

Here is the video with Carla Bruni-Sarkozy. She joined the cause in 2008 when her brother died of AIDS/SIDA.

I apologize for the subtitles, but most of the other videos had ignorant comments.

Do you know anyone with HIV? Is it taught in your schools? Is it discussed in your country?

I think most people forget that it is still growing because it isn't talked about very much in the news and people assume it has gone away.

Here is an article from today of a man in Australia that deliberately infected women with HIV.

How can it take just a signature? It takes money to get things like this done 'cause there has to be a plan implemented to stop it... we can't just vote it away.

The petition demonstrates that you support your country donating money to the Global Fund for research and development to make treatments more effective and accessible. Treatments exist now that prevent transmission from mother to child. The Global Fund ensures that more women/mothers have access to these treatments. Your signature shows your support.

Regardless few countries would agree to this as it isn't an immediate problem for them. Which is the unfortunate truth.

So you're basically saying why bother without even trying? They've gotten 11,000 signatures in 6 days. The aim is to have more than a million by the middle of July.

Is it really hurting anything by at least trying to do something? It's just your name.

A petition to end HIV-born children by 2015? First of all, how is a signature (or a petition) for that matter going to help stop HIV-born babies? Are they going to make it illegal for HIV victims to conceive or something?

I don't understand this at all.

Then you didn't read the first page.

They already have treatments that prevent the transmission of HIV from the mother to their unborn children. By signing the petition you are voicing your support for your country to provide these treatments to all women with HIV, so that no child is born with the disease.

Signed!

What harm could it do to spread more awareness? I totally support it.
Some parties in Holland want to decrease the financial support to developing countries (this includes the fight against AIDS/HIV or course). Well, you're not getting my vote in June you sons of *****es! :mad:

There is a drug that prevents transmission of HIV to children.

Actually I did, and if you read your own post, you'd see that there is no information regarding what the petition will do, only a link and a video to which I am not interested - I would've appreciate a brief summary of what exactly we're signing for - I don't want to have to read a page long article or watch a video to understand.

Thank you for this information, which should have been included on the first page.

Ah, I see. Thank you :).

Someone else asked a similar question as you and I answered it in their post. that's why i said "first PAGE" and not first POST.

and there isn't a page long article. There is a very simple two sentence explanation on their webpage.
