Ashley Judd visits African women AIDS sufferers

It’s not exactly holiday cheer, but if you’re looking for a good cause to give money to this year-end and you need inspiration, check out this news documentary, Tracking the Monster: Ashley Judd And India.Arie Confront AIDS in Africa–it’s scheduled for December 1 on VH1 cable television.

Judd says the spread of AIDS here is due largely to ignorance (as it was here in the U.S. in the 80s). She notes in an interview on MSNBC that African women and young girls are disproportionately being infected with HIV and that the suffering is much greater because there is no money for medicine–even the $1-a-day treatment available today that gives miraculous recovery to HIV victims is beyond the reach of almost all African citizens.
