[FONT=Century Gothic]The announcement comes as (RED) and its partners mark an important milestone in the fight against AIDS, having generated $200 million for the Global Fund. Speaking about his collaboration with (RED), Tiësto said; “When I went to Africa in 2006, I was struck by the devastating effect of AIDS. Now the world has an incredible chance to make sure that babies are born HIV free by 2015, and the dance community is going to make a lot of noise to help make this happen.”[/FONT]
[FONT=Century Gothic] [/FONT]
[FONT=Century Gothic]The war against AIDS faces a critical battle: to deliver the first AIDS Free Generation since HIV was diagnosed 31 years ago. In 2003, new childhood HIV infections peaked with more than 1,500 babies born with HIV every day. For only 40 cents a day, mothers can be treated to prevent transmission to their unborn children, and just over 900 babies are now born daily with the virus. By 2015, that number can be near zero. Ending mother-to-child transmission of HIV is a component of the UN Millennium Development Goals.[/FONT]
[FONT=Century Gothic] [/FONT]
[FONT=Century Gothic]Deborah Dugan, CEO of (RED), said “Tiësto represents a generation of young music fans with incredible passion and energy. We want to tap into that passion to help deliver an AIDS free generation by 2015; a monumentally important milestone in the fight against AIDS. What Tiësto and his friends in the dance music community are bringing to this fight is invaluable. They bring the kind of heat that is so desperately needed to keep this issue at the top of the agenda. This World AIDS Day, I want fans to buy the album and DANCE (RED), SAVE LIVES!

[FONT=Century Gothic]Richie McNeill, Managing Director of Totem OneLove Group, said; “We are really excited to have Stereosonic involved in such a great cause. AIDS is one of many things we should all aim to help research and destroy, and (RED)’s mission to fight AIDS in Africa is a noble one we are simply honored to be a part of. If by music we can spread the word with the generous support of the DJs, artists and record labels, then we will! Big thanks to Tiësto, Complete Control Management’s Josh Neuman and the (RED) crew for inviting us to be a part.”[/FONT]

[FONT=Century Gothic]In addition to being on YouTube, the livestream will be available throughout World AIDS Day weekend across the web on leading sites such as Rolling Stone, Mashable, Huffington Post, Wired, Thrillist, VEVO and on Converse’s Facebook page.

[FONT=Century Gothic]About The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria[/FONT]
[FONT=Century Gothic]The Global Fund is a unique, public-private partnership and international financing institution dedicated to attracting and disbursing additional resources to prevent and treat HIV and AIDS, TB and malaria. This partnership between governments, civil society, the private sector and affected communities represents an innovative approach to international health financing. The Global Fund’s model is based on the concepts of country ownership and performance-based funding, which means that people in countries implement their own programs based on their priorities and the Global Fund provides financing on the condition that verifiable results are achieved.[/FONT]
[FONT=Century Gothic]Since its creation in 2002, the Global Fund has become the main financier of programs to fight AIDS, TB and malaria, with approved funding of US$ 23 billion for more than 1,000 programs in 151 countries (as of mid-2012). To date, programs supported by the Global Fund are providing AIDS treatment for 3.6 million people, anti-tuberculosis treatment for 9.3 million people and 270 million insecticide-treated nets for the prevention of malaria. The Global Fund works in close collaboration with other bilateral and multilateral organizations to supplement existing efforts in dealing with the three diseases.[/FONT]
