Advocates to Send Tweets on HIV/AIDS for Presidential Debate

AIDS United has started a Twitter campaign to get HIV/AIDS on the agenda during the first debate between President Barack Obama and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney on Wednesday, October 3, according to an AIDS United statement. Advocates are asked to tweet questions related to HIV/AIDS to debate moderator Jim Lehrer of PBS NewsHour. Although AIDS United has provided sample tweets, the HIV advocacy group also encourages original tweets sent to @NewsHour that include the #DebateHIV hashtag.

To read the statement and sample tweets,

I agree that AIDS has to be treated from a medical point of view there is however a simple way to prevent it and that is to try to live a life without breaking the commandments of God. In this case it means avoiding getting involved with drugs and multiple partners. Perhas this should be reminded to the people just in case it is forgotten. Living a life without sin keeps us young both in looks and in heart. Living a life with sin means early death or fast aging.
