Gwen recently teamed up with (RED) – the brand designed to help eliminate AIDS in Africa – to raise awareness and spread the word about The Lazarus Effect. “The Lazarus Effect” refers to the transformation that can take place when someone living with HIV has access to 2 antiretroviral pills that cost as little as 40 cents a day. They can live a full life with HIV instead of dying from AIDS.
