в мире практически игнорируются проблемы старых людей, больных СПИД. В Обращение ниже содержится призыв к ООН обратить на это внимание. По ссылке в тексте письма можно подписать это Обращение!

Dear Colleague,

The recent 2012 UNAIDS Global Epidemic Update [see link below *] chronicles the steady progress in delivering effective treatment to people with HIV across the globe.  Unfortunately, the Update does not include data or even a passing mention of the growing numbers who are aging with HIV, largely due to greater access to treatment, but also to new infections among older adults.  Current estimates suggest there are more than 3 million people aged 50 and older with HIV in Africa alone, and countless thousands more around the world.

We are alarmed by this lack of attention to a rapidly growing segment of those with and at risk for HIV.  Therefore, we urge you to join us in urging UNAIDS to take action by adding your signature and/or organization to the sign-on letter.  Just click on this link [https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/HIVAGINGRESPONSE] to sign the letter and please distribute widely.  We would like as many signers as possible before close of business on Friday, January 25th, 2013. 

The letter details the issues and suggests actions to be taken by UNAIDS to address our concerns.  Together, we can help bring greater attention to HIV among older adults.

Thank you!
