Watch a panel discussion today from 10-12 ET in an effort to end HIV/AIDS worldwide. This live stream will be headed up by the ONE Campaign and (Red). Participants will include U.S. President Barak Obama, U2 lead singer Bono, singer/songwriter Alicia Keys, and former U.S. President George W. Bush

I was a teenager in the 80s when AIDS was a big scare in the U.S. Rumors circulated about how contagious and deadly it was. But, looking back, it didn't seem to take long before information and awareness increased, protection was identified, treatments were found, and HIV/AIDS got under control in the United States.

People in Africa and other developing countries also experienced HIV/AIDS. The only difference is that today, nearly 30 years later, Africans are still at high risk of contracting HIV and passing it on to their children. The good news is that there is hope to eradicating it.

Join today's panel from the comfort of your own home by visiting One.org's Youtube's channel and gain more awareness on what you can do to make this the beginning of ending HIV/AIDS worldwide: http://www.youtube.com/theonecampaign.

I am participating in the 12 Days of Change campaign with ONE.org, which is voluntary and focuses on raising awareness to help in the fight against HIV/AIDS.
