Youth Campaign - please sign up to 'Call to Action'

Sent ob behalf of Positively UK:
-----------------------------------------------
Dear colleagues,
Positively UK will be launching a campaign for young people to endorse the document that came out of the Youth Leadership Summit on HIV/AIDS in Mali (15-17th April 2011). The document, called the 'Call to Action', is a document created by young leaders worldwide and demands state leaders to be accountable for their commitments within the HIV/AIDS response. State Leaders have committed in the past to involve young people in important decision-making processes but this is not happening, even though statistics show that 45% of the population of daily new infections worldwide are young people. This accounts for over 3,000 new infections amongs young people a day. This document is being presented at the High Level Meeting [HLM]  in New York on the 8th-10th June 2011 and we need you to endorse it.
We would be grateful if you could please:
1) Endorse the Call to Action by accessing www.whatabouthiv.org
2) Circulate this petition amongst your networks and newsletters.
We need as many signatures as possible before the HLM to make the Call to Action and the demands of young people be heard.

Thank you very much for your support and please do not hesitate to email any questions/comments to:
elena@positivelyuk.org and/or mireia@positivelyuk.org

Best wishes
