I came across the Red Campaign by accident when browsing my RSS feeds. Wondering what Red was I clicked through and discovered a film called The Lazarus Effect. Thirty minutes later with tears streaming down my face I came to end of the video. Watch it - is one of the most moving videos I have seen in a long time.

I know little about HIV/AIDS and I did not know how effective antiretroviral drugs (ARVs) could be.

To see these wonderful people literally brought back from the brink of death is so moving.

It seems that over 3 million people are receiving ARVs across Africa but still 3,800 people in Africa die every day from AIDS.

It costs 40 cents a day for the treatment!
