Annie Lennox: Why I am an HIV/AIDS activist

Annie Lennox described the SING campaign in this TED video recorded in 2010. SING raises awareness about the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Africa. That women and children were the front-line victims in South Africa motivated Lennox to take action. Among other things, SING seeks to eradicate the transmission of HIV/AIDS from mother to child by 2015.

TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader. Along with two annual conferences -- the TED Conference in Long Beach and Palm Springs each spring, and the TEDGlobal conference in Edinburgh UK each summer -- TED includes the award-winning TED Talks video site, the Open Translation Project and TED Conversations, the inspiring TED Fellows and TEDx programs, and the annual TED Prize.
