The Fight against AIDS Fondation, which organized the charity concert "Our songs against AIDS" at the Palau Sant Jordi last June 8th, has obtained a final collection of € 500,507, the sum of the proceeds from the concert and CD-DVD sales of the act. The profits will go to four research projects that are being developed right now in the Foundation:
- the eradication of HIV in positive people
- the therapeutic vaccine and its use in the eradication in people already infected
- the study of co-infection with human papillomavirus
- and the study of cardiovascular risk in HIV patients
This concert is added to the bulk of activities and events that the Foundation organizes every year not only to raise funds but also to maintain the alert of society about HIV.
As the president of the Foundation, Dr. Bonaventura Clotet appreciates the generous collaboration of all persons and entities who made this great event possible and the success of revenue that will fund several projects of great social and health impact. In particular, Fede Sardà and Gemma Recoder (Luz de Gas), who carried the full weight of this initiative, Estrella Damm and media El Periódico, La Vanguardia, ARA, Sport, TV3, Catalunya Radio and Enderrock, and also of all the artists and groups involved, without whose commitment and generosity this great success could not have been achieved. The double CD and DVD has been edited with the collaboration of the Catalunya Caixa Foundation.
