Campaign to fight AIDS

UNITED NATIONS: The United Nations and its partners has launched a global campaign to support the millions of children affected by HIV/AIDS and eradicate the ``disgrace'' that sees fewer than five per cent of HIV-positive youngsters receiving treatment. ``Nearly 25 years into the pandemic, help is reaching less than 10 per cent of the children affected by HIV/AIDS, leaving too many children to grow up alone, grow up too fast or not grow up at all,'' said U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan at the launch of the campaign, noting that millions of children who have lost parents to the disease go without support. The campaign is Unite for Children, Unite Against AIDS.
