“I would like to thank the people of India for their brave and conscientious work in the fight again HIV/AIDS and for allowing amfAR the privilege of joining them in this important global effort,” said Sharon Stone. “We are grateful and humbled to be welcomed by the Indian community and to share in the wealth of knowledge provided by the Indian people and its government.”
amfAR Chairman Kenneth Cole, Anuj Gupta, and Rocky Malhotra will be amongst the special guests attending the event which will include a black-tie dinner and auction and will be similar to amfAR’s black tie galas that take place all over the world. A host of Indian celebrities, industrialists and a who’s who are expected to attend to make this inaugural amfAR event an annual fixture on the socialite calendar.
Through the years, the Indian community has been exemplary in its support of amfAR, particularly in connection with its events in Cannes and Milan. amfAR’s first international benefit was held in 1993 during the Cannes Film Festival and hosted by amfAR Founding International Chairman Dame Elizabeth Taylor. Since then, the Foundation’s international galas in Milan, New York, Los Angeles, Cannes, São Paolo, Venice, Rome, and Dubai have become some of the most high-profile, eagerly anticipated and consistently successful charity events in the world, raising millions for critical AIDS research programs.
While this is its first fundraising gala in India, amfAR has worked hand in hand with Indian physicians and researchers for many years through its TREAT Asia program.
Furthermore, amfAR-supported research contributed to the development of four of the six classes of drugs used to treat people living with HIV in India and around the world. And amfAR pioneered the research that ultimately led to the use of antiretroviral drugs to block mother-to-child transmission of HIV. As a result, this mode of transmission has been virtually eliminated in many parts of the world.
