ATLANTA, Nov. 3, 2014 — The Coca-Cola Company, in partnership with (RED), invites people from all over the world to join efforts to help end mother-to-child transmission of HIV with the launch of a new campaign, titled “SHARE THE SOUND OF AN AIDS FREE GENERATION”. The campaign will feature an array of top artists as they debut new music, and offer exclusive experiences encouraging people to come together, to share, and most importantly—to give.  Funds raised from the campaign will go to the Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria to finance grants which provide HIV prevention, testing, counseling, treatment, and care services. 
The month-long global program which runs through World AIDS Day on December 1st, 2014, shares a message of hope and unity to empower today’s youth to understand they can be the generation to end the AIDS pandemic. 650 babies are born every day with HIV, yet life-saving medication exists and costs as little as $.40 a day.  That same medication can reduce the risk of an HIV-positive woman passing on the virus to her baby by 95%.  In 2013, for the first time since the discovery of the virus, more people were newly added to treatment than were newly infected with HIV, a critical milestone marking the beginning of the end of AIDS.
“One of the primary goals behind the movement of this campaign is to use the power of music to rally millennials in realizing that an AIDS Free generation is within reach,” said Emmanuel Seuge, Vice President, Global Alliances & Ventures, The Coca-Cola Company.  “We are grateful to all of the artists who are joining us in this remarkable effort.”
New Music
The campaign kicks off with the debut of Queen’s “Let Me in Your Heart Again,” a previously unreleased song, mixed by William Orbit exclusively for the (Coca-Cola) RED campaign.  The song features the iconic vocals of the late Freddie Mercury, who passed from AIDS in 1991.  Each week, a new artist will unveil an original song which will be available to download on iTunes with proceeds benefitting the Global Fund at www.iTunes.com/REDSound.  The tracks include:
  • “Let Me in Your Heart Again” (William Orbit Mix) by Queen featuring Freddie Mercury(Week of November 3)
  • “Together” by Aloe Blacc (Week of November 10)
  • “Divine Sorrow” by Wyclef Jean featuring Avicii (Week of November 17)
  • “I Lived (RED) Remix” by OneRepublic (Week of November 24)
“It’s been 23 years since the world lost our beloved Freddie Mercury,” said Queen guitarist Brian May.  “We’ve made extraordinary progress in the fight against AIDS in that time.  But we cannot simply rest on the fact that the treatment is available.  We must ensure that it is provided.  Roger and I are proud to lend this rediscovered song to the ( Coca-Cola) RED campaign, in the hope that Freddie’s powerful voice can inspire the world yet again.”

"Incredible things have happened in the fight against AIDS, bringing the pandemic to a tipping point. There is much to celebrate, but we must also renew our vow to wrestle this virus to the point it becomes part of our history not our present, said Bono, (RED) co-founder. (RED) partners like Coca-Cola are on (RED) alert this World AIDS Day to keep the pressure up, with the help of longtime AIDS activists Queen, and musicians Avicii, Deadmau5, Wyclef Jean, Aloe Blacc and OneRepublic.  Music fans have been a real army in the fight against AIDS, we hope this campaign will swell the ranks.”

I recently had the opportunity to travel with our partners from (RED) to see the amazing impact their work is having on the ground in Africa. We visited Lesotho and Zambia and in both countries I was pleasantly surprised to see the incredible progress being made towards achieving an AIDs-free generation by 2015.
We visited one of these clinics, our 4-wheel drive truck struggling at times to make it up the very hills that the villagers trek all too frequently in order to get life-saving medicine. While we were there we witnessed couples anxiously awaiting their mutual test results, an HIV positive expectant mother receiving ARVs to help ensure her baby will be HIV negative and men, women and children coming to receive their allotment of AIDS medicine which will allow them to live healthy lives.

Instead they were used to promote Coca-Cola's partnership with (RED) in order to "SHARE THE SOUND OF AN AIDS FREE GENERATION" for World Aids Day, which was a month long campaign running from 1st December 2014 to January 1st 2015.

I was particularly impressed and inspired by Lesotho. The country’s landscape is stunning, full of incredible mountains, which divide the country into hundreds of small villages. We learned that over 100 ballot boxes had to be delivered by helicopter during the recent presidential election due to the challenging terrain. This terrain proves to be even more challenging for those dedicated to providing health services to thousands of rural citizens.  Nonetheless small, humble clinics exist throughout the country and are visited each day by people from miles away who come for medicine, tests and counseling. 

Our visit to Zambia was equally as inspiring. We learned about grassroots programs that teach young children about AIDs through sports & physical activity and experienced first hand what a day in the life of an HIV positive orphan would be at an orphanage. Despite the challenges the majority of Zambians face everyday I was amazed to see and feel their optimism and energy.  There is a sense of change and positive momentum in the country and I could feel it in almost every interaction I had during our visit.

Throughout the journey we met amazing people who have not allowed AIDS to stop them from living a meaningful and fulfilling life. From Motselisi, an HIV positive 5 year old who is healthy thanks to the ARVs to Connie, a woman expecting an HIV negative baby girl in December after losing three children to AIDs in the 90’s, we were met with unbelievable spirits and a sense of community everywhere we visited. It was an incredibly inspiring trip where I witnessed the true power of collaboration.  When corporations like The Coca-Cola Company partner with organizations like (RED) and the Global Fund, together we’re stronger and capable of making positive changes around the world.

The Coca-Cola Company has committed more than $5 million to the Global Fund.
In the words of Coca-Cola Chairman and CEO, Muhtar Kent, “It’s encouraging to think that we could witness an AIDS-free generation during our lifetime. We’re proud to help this effort and believe it complements the current work we’re doing in many parts of the world to educate and prevent HIV/AIDS as well as provide support to people affected by this preventable and treatable disease.” Coca-Cola has made an initial commitment of more than $5 million USD over the next four years. 

The partnership will raise awareness and money to help eliminate mother-to-child transmission of HIV. This money will help fund up to 7.5 million doses of antiretroviral treatment for people affected by HIV/AIDS in Africa. The Coca-Cola system employs more than 70,000 people in Africa, which is home to more than 60 percent of the world's HIV-infected population.

“Collectively, we have the power to help deliver an AIDS-Free Generation. We feel that (THRED) is a great way to capture attention and one that gives everyone the opportunity to contribute their time, money and networks to help end the transmission of HIV from mothers to their babies by 2015.” -Wendy Clark, Senior Vice President of Integrated Marketing Communications, The Coca-Cola Company The bottles you mention were never on general sale.
