Uniting for an AIDS-Free Generation

By Jane Coaston | July 24, 2012

This past Saturday evening, UNAIDS hosted an event called Uniting for an AIDS-Free Generation, held at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.

“Uniting for an AIDS-free Generation"—the theme of the event—took the audience on a historical journey through the history of AIDS, highlighting the early days of the epidemic and key milestones in the world’s response to the disease. Through music and personal anecdotes, guests shared experiences of how HIV has shaped society and brought forward a global movement never before witnessed for a disease.”

Jake Glaser spoke about his mother’s legacy and work with Foundation, and later blogged about the experience and what it was like to meet Kweku Mandela, Nelson Mandela’s grandson.  The audience was also treated to an edited version of the Foundation’s “Countdown to an AIDS-Free Generation”, which you can see below.
