Lexi Underwood Challenges Young People to Fight HIV
Lexi is a RED ambassador who has made her voice clear about the scourge of diseases like HIV and how they ravaged young people. On her recent trip to Tanzania, Lexi began to voice out her displeasure on how HIV/AIDS continues to decapitate the youth, especially in third-world countries.
The RED organization was co-founded by Bono, the lead singer of the group U2. Lexi believes that health injustice allows diseases like HIV to thrive in certain countries, however taking small actions can have a positive effect in turning around the trend.
According to Lexi, roughly 700 women between ages 5 and 24 contract HIV daily globally, and this makes the disease the third leading cause of fatality among women. She further stated that women in third-world countries in Africa are three times more likely to contract the disease than women from other parts of the world.
Lexi was joined by two other celebrities on her trip to Tanzania to support the cause of the fight against the HIV scourge. According to the Plus Online Magazine, Lexi will continue to work with grassroots doctors and organizers to fight the scourge of HIV diseases in third-world countries.
