  About the Project   Radio Diaries  

Q: How many people have died from AIDS?
Over 25 million. That’s more than the combined populations of New York,
Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Boston, Milwaukee,
Atlanta, San Diego, Columbus, Charlotte, Phoenix, Dallas and San Jose.

Q: What does the future look like?
A: Unless significant action is taken immediately, experts agree that by
2010 there will be 100 million people living with HIV/AIDS around the world.
More than 40 million children will become orphaned by the disease.

Q: What can I do?
A: There’s a lot you can do to help save lives, and it doesn’t have to take
much. You can participate in AIDS walks or events to raise awareness and
money, deliver meals to home-bound people living with HIV/AIDS, or contact
your local government officials about what you would like to see done.
