About the MTV Numbers Campaign
The MTV Numbers Campaign was created to raise awareness of HIV/AIDS by combining powerful statistical facts and some of the most well-known celebrities to drive a direct and impactful message to the young generation. It was built as a reaction to the belief that HIV/AIDS is no longer a deadly disease with grave results. However, the facts still remain that HIV/AIDS is still an on-going illness and the infected demographic is changing.
The Numbers Campaign features Eglantina Zingg, Cynthia Olavarria, Panky Savinon, and Willy Martin, each imprinted with a number that represents an HIV/AIDS statistic. The campaign’s images are to inform others of the impact HIV/AIDS is still having in our world, and that this illness is still deadly.
Number Campaign’s goal is to help inform others of the numbers and encouraging them to make sure they don’t become one.
- 39% of new HIV infections are between the ages of 13 and 29. The largest age group.
- 98% of HIV infections could be prevented using a condom.
- Every 9 1/2 minutes, someone in the US is infected with HIV.
- 34 million people are living with VIH.
