The HIV/AIDS pandemic is the greatest global threat in the world today. Africa is ground zero of the crisis â€“ home to nearly two-thirds of those living with HIV/AIDS worldwide. Africaâ€™s HIV/AIDS crisis is the direct result of centuries of global injustice. Now, African efforts to defeat HIV/AIDS are hindered by insufficient resources and by U.S. and international policies that restrict access to essential treatment and comprehensive health care. Africa Actionâ€™s Campaign to End HIV/AIDS in Africa mobilizes U.S. activists to change the policies of our own government to help end the HIV/AIDS crisis in Africa.
