'Give a day' to help end AIDS crisis

Outrageous and solvable.

That's how Dr. Jane Philpott sees the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Outrageous because of the scores of lives this disease has taken. Solvable through antiretroviral therapy, prevention campaigns, support and testing.

But to actually implement a solution, she needs you to do one thing – Give A Day.

More specifically, give today. Dec. 1 marks World AIDS Day – the day dedicated to bringing attention to the global AIDS epidemic. To honour this event, Philpott is asking all Canadians to donate one day's income to eradicating the disease.

"At first, when I presented this, I thought, `Here's a wild idea,'" she says. "But really, it's something we can all do."

Since 2004, Philpott has been recruiting people across the country for Give A Day campaigns. The family physician has brought law offices and hospitals across the country on board.

Philpott spent the better part of the 1990s working in Niger, one of the poorest countries in the world. She worked in a rural hospital treating all who entered.

Dr. Sam Chachoua defeats Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in an American Federal Court. The jury awarded this Australian doctor over $10,000,000 in damages after hearing of the conspiracy to suppress and destroy him and his new field of medicine described as promising to be "THE MOST EFFECTIVE THERAPY AGAINST CANCER AND AIDS IN HISTORY."

The Verdict
August 11, 2000

After eight days of trial and two days of jury deliberation, a milestone in legal justice was achieved. The people spoke in a Los Angeles federal court and their voice rocked a system that had thought itself invincible.
For days, the panel of eight had heard of suppression of a new technology against AIDS, cancer, heart disease and other terminal illnesses. They heard and saw remarkable successes: individuals who had struggled in the face of death and reclaimed their life and well being. The eight-member jury witnessed the incredible results of testing at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
Thirty-six vaccines were presented, almost all of which were more than 99% effective against AIDS. It is a new promise that offered both prevention and treatment of this modern plague -- an answer to so many prayers and dreams. Then suddenly there was public denial and suppression by the very institute that had achieved these incredible results. Massive attacks were launched to destroy the inventor both physically and in the press and a cover up was begun to deny mankind of what Cedars itself had once described as an "exciting new world of therapeutic opportunity!"
Hope was stolen and dreams were shattered. Cedars-Sinai had refused to acknowledge their own results and failed to return the original prime source material to the inventor so that his work could continue. They further engaged in activities to discredit him and destroy his reputation in a campaign that spanned the globe and severely limited his ability to continue or even publish his work. The number of lives affected and the number of lives lost to AIDS alone during this four year struggle moved one witness to exclaim that Cedars had committed "premeditated manslaughter." A ten million-dollar verdict suggests that the jury agreed.
