For the second year in a row, AID FOR AIDS International’s (AFAI) campaign, “Leaving a Footprint for a World Without a Trace of HIV,” will be featured on the show: ¡A tu Salud! Through a video featuring the campaign, AFAI seeks to bring awareness about the HIV epidemic, while promoting its program which consists of recycling and redistributing HIV medicines. Through this program, AFAI has distributed over $85 million in HIV medicine to over 40 developing countries.
¡A tu Salud! is a health and wellness television series created by The Mount Sinai Hospital for the Latino community. The program spotlights some of the key health issues affecting the Latino community and teaches viewers how to overcome illness and take charge of their health through inspirational, informative and uplifting stories. It also serves to reinforce the hospital’s commitment to the well being of Latinos.
This year, Mount Sinai has partnered once again with Univision’s Channel 41 New York to air the series, beginning on Sunday September 23th at 6 am and running every Sunday thereafter for 12 weeks. We are delighted to be able to be a part of this media campaign again this year, and we hope that our video will help us reach a wider audience with our mission. This goal could not be accomplished without the help of our partners at Mount Sinai Hospital and Univision. Thank you!
