As an employee of a company whose mission is to help accelerate life science research and whose customers are working towards curing diseases and cancers, it's a bit sad to see that a disease like HIV, which is both preventable and already treatable is still being transmitted (1.8 million new cases in 2017) and killing (940K AIDS-related deaths in 2017).

The power of research and information have shown to have results, reducing transmission by 15% and deaths by 50% over the past 10 years.

While these number have declined in the last 10 years, we still have a ways to go. I'm participating in the SF Aids Walk this year to help raise awareness and money to help fund projects and services to continue spreading information, to destigmatize HIV/AIDS, and to help save lives via both prevention and treatment.

I would love it if you could donate, but at the very least, please educate yourself more on HIV/AIDS and its history, and get tested!
