Miss Universe 2013 Gabriela Isler will be the ambassador for the fight against HIV. “Miss Universe’s charitable platform is the fight against the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Over the last decade, every Miss Universe titleholder has traveled around the world championing this cause and creating awareness for HIV/AIDS prevention, HIV testing, and access to medical care.”
Gabriela Isler sent herself as a venezuelan girl very concerned by the HIV too. According to the website kff.org, Adult HIV/AIDS Prevalence Percent (Aged 15-49) is 0,6% in Venezuela. She said that she will read a lot of articles about this subject to have more and more informations. Gabriela says her work will focus on different vulnerable groups: women, and gay adolescents . “Gay men are one of the first outbreaks of the disease, which has spread a lot, but it also affects women.” (eldiariony.com & Miss Universe Organization)

I remember when Leila Lopes from Angola was crowned Miss Universe in 2011 it was very important for her to be a part of the fight against HIV, as she is african and it affects a big part of Africa. She was actively involved in raising awareness about HIV/AIDS and the discrimination that people with the disease experience. It was a feature of her reign as Miss Universe, she can be proud of herself. Photo aidforaids.org, October 26, 2011
