But new scientific modeling shows that we can reverse it, saving a million lives from TB-HIV disease between now and 2015. But world leaders must act. That’s why we need you. Leaders are convening this week at the United Nations to chart the future global response to HIV/AIDS. Join us in sending a million messages — fight AIDS and TB together to save a million lives!
