Photo Exhibit: One Step Closer to Ending AIDS

Visit the Bank of America Winter Village Deck to see a moving exhibit by internationally renowned photographer Rankin in partnership with (RED).


Great strides are being made in AIDS research and today, thanks to free access to medication, HIV-positive women can lead healthy lives and deliver healthy, HIV-free babies. There’s still work to be done though, and to raise awareness, Bank of America and (RED) are sharing the stories of the amazing mothers, children, and healthcare workers in Zambia whose lives have been changed as a result of this HIV medication.

From November 17 through December 2, the Deck at Bank of America Winter Village will serve as the site for a special exhibition of photographs shot in Zambia by renowned photographer Rankin. There will also be information on how to get involved in the fight against AIDS in Africa. One Step Closer to Ending AIDS is open 10am-10pm every day throughout its run. For more information, please visit    

(RED) was founded in 2006 by Bono and Bobby Shriver as an effort to engage the private sector in raising awareness and funds to help eliminate HIV/AIDS. Bank of America has donated $10 million towards this fight against AIDS, which translates into more than 30 million days of life-saving HIV medication.

You can help! Through December 31, Bank of America will match you dollar for dollar for every donation you make to (RED) through the Global Fund. Additionally, they’ll donate 30 cents, the cost of a full day of life-changing medication, for each unique visit to the campaign’s website through the end of the year.
