Several years ago I personally witnessed Nelson Mandela, standing in front of his former prison cell on Robben Island, addressing the world’s press. His message was that the pandemic of HIV/AIDS in Africa was in fact, a genocide. Since that time I resolved to do as much as I can do bring attention to the HIV/AIDS crisis.

The generics are HIV/AIDS activists and members of treatment action campaign, founded by the legendary Zackie Achmat.
