is year has seen new initiatives to raise money to fund HIV prevention and care services, including antiretrovirals and the infrastructure to deliver them, in the developing world. At the World Economic Forum in Davos in January, the pop-music celebrity Bono announced the "Product Red" brand to fight HIV/AIDS in AfricaNew philanthropic and taxation efforts to fight HIV/AIDS must be encouraged.

We support these new initiatives and encourage other businesses to join Product Red."
