FGFJ | MTV Public Service Announcement on HIV/AIDS with Japan’s First Lady

April 10, 2015

A public service announcement (PSA) featuring Japan’s First Lady Akie Abe speaking out on HIV/AIDS has just been released online and is being aired on MTV channels in Japan and across Asia. In collaboration with the MTV Staying Alive Foundation, Mrs. Abe is appealing to young people to “join us in breaking the silence” in order to raise awareness of HIV/AIDS in Asia, which has the second largest AIDS-related death toll after sub-Saharan Africa. The first lady was joined by a group of young Japanese HIV/AIDS activists to record the message, which will be aired in both English and Japanese to maximize its impact across the region.
