CIS 2 Midterm Topic
For my CIS 2 midterm topic, I chose to do research on combating HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases. The following are some of the resources I found that are fighting AIDS:
- Product (RED) is a brand partnership with many brands including Apple, Nike and Gap to raise awareness and fund to help eliminate AIDS in Afraid. The proceeds go to The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.The company often receives criticism because only a certain percentage of the proceeds go to the Global Fund To Fight Aids (etc.) and the companies make their own profit.
- The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria was founded by Bill Gates as a international financing organization to fight AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria. The organization doesn't technically do anything to the fore mentioned diseases, they just raise money. Their proceeds are implemented by Country Coordinating Mechanisms.
- The HIV Medicine Association is an organization of medical professionals who practice HIV medicine. They promote the quality of HIV care and advocate or policies to ensure a comprehensive response to AIDS.
