Fergie at MAC AIDS HIV Prevention Initiative

Fergie speaks with youth at the MAC AIDS Fund’s Global Youth Prevention Initiative at Safe Space in New York on Wednesday.

“Every 15 seconds someone between the ages of 15 and 24 is infected with HIV, and combating the spread of this disease has a lot to do with raising awareness,” said Fergie. “As a musician, I’m able to reach a wider audience about issues close to my heart, and through the VIVA GLAM campaign, I’ve been able to get this message across to youth around the world. I’m so gratified that my lipglass has raised funds to help prevent youth across the globe from contracting HIV.”
