Sia, Zoe Saldana and Julianna Moore are joining forces in the new video for Sia’s song “Free Me”. An unreleased track, Sia is releasing the tune to raise important awareness and funds for the organization #endHIV.

“The HIV/AIDS epidemic is one that can affect anyone, particularly child-bearing women around the globe,” Sia says in a statement. “I’ve proudly joined forces with the Abzyme Research Foundation and the #endHIV Campaign for the release of my song, ‘Free Me,’ to help raise funds and awareness for a potential breakthrough cure of the epidemic.”

#endHIV Is working on a promising solution to the HIV/AIDS pandemic, and now they want to turn that potential cure into a reality. Their game-changing approach to HIV vaccinations using HIV-neutralizing antibodies could successfully be used to end HIV and AIDS.

Their website reads: “Today’s conventional view is that lifelong, daily treatment for HIV+ people is the last frontier in the global war on HIV/AIDS. We think more should be done to address this challenge, and our disruptive vaccine is intended to provide a functional cure. #endHIV challenges how academia, pharmaceutical companies, and charities work together to test innovative cure approaches.”

“Great leaps forward in medical and scientific understanding are almost always met with dismissal and skepticism,” says Executive Director and Founder Zachary Barnett. “Examples populate the entire history of modern science from Darwin to Salk, and bold advances are the result of groups of dedicated individuals who defy popular opinion, put their reputations and careers on the line, and fight for a new understanding. I believe that advancing a cure would benefit all of us, and is thus up to us. The ball is in our court to help support or ignore promising research.”

All proceeds from Sia’s video and single go directly to #endHIV.
