Every year, 26,000 babies are stillborn in America. In 2003, one of them was my son.

Born HIV Free Campaign

"Every minute of every day, a child is born with HIV."

This statistic is from The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.

There's a web campaign at their site going on right now, asking people to sign their petition, which will go to global leaders requesting support and money for the fund. Their goal is to end the mother-to-child  transmission of HIV by 2015. Approximately 400,000 babies are born with HIV every year.

From their site: "The goal of an HIV-free generation by 2015 is a global commitment by dozens of international and non-governmental organizations, who have committed to work together to make this a reality. The Global Fund’s task is to provide countries with the funding they need to achieve this."

This is doable. Will you join me in signing?
