What can you do with five dollars? That's the question actors Wilson Cruz (Noah's Arc, Coffee Date), Thea Gill (Queer As Folk) and HIV/AIDS activist Hydeia Broadbent along with others are asking in a new PSA for endhiv.com. Five dollars will go a long way in supporting the efforts of doctors committed to developing an HIV vaccine.
Scientists received their first signs of hope for developing a vaccine earlier this month in Thailand when the world's largest HIV/AIDS vaccine trial of more than 16,000 volunteers was the first in which infection was prevented.
Every day, 7,000 people worldwide are newly infected with HIV; 2 million died of AIDS in 2007, the UN agency UNAIDS estimates.
A successfully developed vaccine could mean the beginning of the end of a horrible epidemic that has taken the lives of so many people and has posed an even greater threat to gay men and communities of color.
