(RED) TALKS RETURNS FOR SECOND SEASON
With support from ViiV Healthcare, (RED) will host the second season of its multi-part series of frank conversations, titled “(RED) TALKS,” exploring the current state of the AIDS fight, its impact on marginalized communities – especially women and girls – and present opportunities to shine a spotlight on the need for investments in the fight ahead of the Global Fund’s upcoming fall Replenishment. The panels will feature government, private sector, advocacy and impact leaders from around the world, including, Deborah Waterhouse, CEO ViiV Healthcare, Matthew Kavanagh, Deputy Executive Director, a.i., Policy, Advocacy and Knowledge, UNAIDS, and Siobhan Crowley, Head of HIV, The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria, will raise awareness for the fight against AIDS and the importance of stronger global health systems. Beginning July 13th, new episodes will be released every Wednesday across (RED)’s social media channels, including YouTube.
“COVID-19 has threatened not just lives and livelihoods, but our hard-fought progress against preventable diseases, like AIDS,” said Deborah Waterhouse, CEO of ViiV Healthcare. “ViiV Healthcare and (RED) are committed to delivering impactful programs that leave no person living with HIV behind. We’re delighted to support (RED) Talks and help draw attention to the steps that are needed to bring an end to the epidemic.”
MANY WAYS TO GIVE (RED) THIS SUMMER
(RED)’s coalition of financial institutions, including long-standing partner Bank of America, along with American Express®, Chase, Citi, PayPal and Wells Fargo are helping raise money to support stronger global health systems through entities like the Global Fund COVID-19 Response Mechanism and the Gavi COVAX Advance Market Commitment (AMC).
“The fight to end AIDS and COVID-19 will not be won without continued support from the private sector, to further bolster public sector efforts. And it’s not just money – the awareness these companies can bring is invaluable to keep these pandemics and the communities they hit hardest, front of mind,” said Jennifer Lotito, President and COO of (RED). “This summer, (RED) is making it easier than ever to turn up the heat against pandemics by funding global health programs that save lives. We’re so grateful to all of our (RED) partners for stepping up and helping us deliver testing, treatment, and vaccines to those most in need.”
(RED), named for the color of emergency, was founded by Bono and Bobby Shriver in 2006 to turn companies into a cavalry to fight the AIDS pandemic. Today, that cavalry is also fighting the urgent threat of COVID and its devastating impact on the world’s most vulnerable communities, answering the need for a truly global response.
(RED) partners with the most iconic brands and people to create (RED) products and experiences — all of which raise money for the Global Fund, one of the world’s largest funders of global health. (RED) partners include AM Denmark, Amazon, Anova Culinary, Apple, Balmain, Bank of America, Barefoot Dreams, Beats by Dr. Dre, Earth Rated, eos, Fiat, Girl Skateboards, The Honey Pot Co., Jeep, KISS Products, Louis Vuitton, Mavin Records, Morel Eyewear, Primark, RAM, The Ridge, Salesforce, Starbucks, Therabody, TRUFF, U-Mask, Vahdam India and Vespa.
