One, C.U.R.E., and Resource Center of Dallas is having a special FREE screening of the (RED) and HBO documentary THE LAZARUS EFFECT. This is a great chance to learn about HIV, AIDS, and the fight against AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria.
“The 30 minute film illustrates the transformative effect of life-saving antiretroviral medicine through the stories of HIV+ people in Zambia. By taking the ARV medicine – 2 life-saving pills that cost around 40 cents a day – in as few as 40 days, the medicine can help bring people back to life.
HIV/AIDS is a preventable and treatable disease yet it has killed more than 20 million people in Africa. In 2002 only 50,000 people had access to the medication due to its high cost. Today, thanks to reduced costs and increased access, more than 3 million people in Africa are now receiving treatment. Still, 3,800 people die every day in sub-Saharan Africa from AIDS. “The Lazarus Effect” film shows that this needn’t be the case.” – (RED)
