International AIDS Conference 2008: Preview

Found a nice, succinct article about the upcoming International AIDS Conference in Mexico City (Aug. 3-8).  The article is from the East African Business Week.  (I’m in Chicago, reading an East African news article about a conference in Mexico.  Score one for globalization. . . .)

According to the article, “The conference theme of Universal Action Now emphasizes the need for continued urgency in the worldwide response to HIV/AIDS, and for action on the part of all stakeholders.”

For more on the conference schedule and participants, check out the article.  But here’s my favorite part:

And joining this illustrious group of world leaders will be 12-year old Keren Gonzalez. Ms Gonzalez hails from Honduras, and has been actively involved in a number of HIV-related programmes aimed at young people since the age of 9, including acting as editor for the magazine, Infantil LLAVECITAS, aimed at children aged 8 to 12 years affected directly and indirectly by HIV/AIDS.
