Prescription to end AIDS in Chicago (and beyond)

leave a comment »

From David Munar, AIDS Foundation of Chicago:

At Saturday’s 2008 AIDS Run & Walk Chicago, AIDS Foundation of Chicago collected several hundred individual suggestions re “a prescription to end AIDS.”  We reformatted C2EA’s message-in-a-bottle campaign to recycle a large cardboard cut-out of a pill bottle we had in the office.  We also distributed 2,500 safe-sex kits through a new campaign called “Love the One You’re With” (see: www.aidschicago.org/condoms), conducted voter registration, and led more than a dozen educational sessions on male and female condoms.

Text of the Stand Against AIDS/NAS campaign is below.  See the pics at: http://www.new.facebook.com/album.php?aid=57878&l=59078&id=796819697
