Mrs. Obama, I am glad that you finally acknowledged HIV/AIDS on your visit to Kenya, but we need more of your support here in the USA, especially in how it affects the African-American Community. Did you know that African-American women have an 18% chance more of contracting HIV/AIDS than white women and that it is also the main cause of death of these woman from ages 14-55? PEPFAR is a good start, but we need more support from the leaders of our country to help eradicate the stigma here!
