As STD Rates Soar, AHF Rolls Out Condom Billboard Ad Campaigns Across U.S.

gbafNews28

As rates of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) continue to skyrocket in the U.S.with 50 percent of new infections being acquired by young people ages 15 to 24 years oldAIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) is rolling out of two new, parallel condom billboard and transit advertising campaigns promoting condom use as an effective means to combat record rates of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis being reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In August, CNN reported that rates of those three STDS ¦ have climbed for the fourth consecutive year in the United States, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced Tuesday at the National STD Prevention Conference in Washington.

Over the past weeks and in the lead up to International Condom Day (observed on February 13th) billboards and transit ads for AHFs LOVE and ICON brand condoms have posted in Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, New York and several other markets.

The artwork for both versions of AHFs condom ads features the text of the name of the particular brandLOVE condom or ICON condom (in this case, in the word ˜ICONIC)set simply on a background resembling a swirled sheet. In each ad, the letter ˜O has been replaced with an image of a wrapped condom of the respective brand, with the imprint of the condom ring on the packaging suggesting the letter ˜O.

AHFs LOVE and ICON brand condom ads are, or will be appearing in the following markets and formats:

AHF has been promoting sexual health and STD screening through its innovative public awareness and billboard campaigns for the past several years in response to the skyrocketing rates of STDs nationwide, particularly among young people and men-who-have-sex-with-men, said Michael Weinstein, President of AHF. With rates of STDs continuing to soar, and the increasing recognition of the shortcomings of biomedical interventions like PrEPwhich prevents HIV acquisition, but has not really caught on with the public, as evidenced by Gileads latest report of only 167,000 people on the prevention protocolAHF is leading the public back to basics by reminding people that condoms are an effective, inexpensiveand often freeprevention tool.

In June 2018, it launched a Gonorrhea Alert billboard campaign, a nationwide effort to educate about a drug-resistant strain of the STD. The Gonorrhea Alert billboard campaign is a follow up and parallels AHFs syphilis prevention and treatment billboard campaigns that have included Syphilis is Serious billboards which launched earlier this year and the Syphilis Explosion outdoor advertising campaign which first starting running in 2014. That campaign was followed by AHFs Syphilis Tsunami campaign which ran in Los Angeles in 2016.

Huawei, Sunline Jointly Launch Contactless Digital Loan One Box Solution

gbafNews28

SHANGHAI, Sept. 26, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — At HUAWEI CONNECT 2020, Sunline and Huawei jointly released the Digital Loan One Box Solution — a global contactless solution for financial services. This solution will be rolled out across countries and regions, such as Southeast Asia, the Middle East, Latin America, and Africa, where financial inclusiveness is urgently necessary.

Digital Loan One Box adopts an open strategy, allowing financial institutions to launch a wide range of contactless services, such as online loan product campaign, customer E-KYC, risk assessment, fund disbursement, and post-loan processing. The solution responds to the urgent need from both FIs and their customers for digital financial services. This requirement is ever more pressing amid the pandemic that many countries continue to battle.

As the cornerstones of national economies, financial institutions need contactless, digital, and online financial services, especially in the current situation. However, global banks face similar challenges in the course of digital transformation: huge costs and risks to replace legacy systems, limited budget and uncertain return on investment for transformation, lack of open business and technology experience, increasingly fierce competitions, and more demand of contactless service driven by the pandemic, etc.

Contactless finance refers to services where customers and banks do not need to interact face-to-face. Via Omni-channels, it supports plug-in-based services, built-in businesses, and out-of-the-box features.

The Digital Loan One Box Solution is built on Huawei FusionCube Hyper-Converged Infrastructure, adopting the enterprise-level microservices banking framework EDSP released by Sunline in 2020. The solution supports rapid, dynamic horizontal scaling on both the business and system demands. It also provides DevOps continuous delivery assembly line to meet the increasingly agile development requirements of financial institutions. Contactless banking services make banking much more convenient, while remaining user-friendly, timely, and professional, leading to better customer satisfaction, retention, and loyalty. The interconnection of the financial ecosystem serves boosts market share and reputation of financial institutions. The solution also offers cost-effective TCO that meets their investment expectations.

Digital Loan One Box delivers performance of utmost speed in the following areas:

  • Real-time remote account opening and biometric identity authentication via multiple approaches (MFA)
  • Quick online loan origination, approval, and fund disbursement (three-minute application, one-second loan approval, and zero manual intervention)
  • Real-time formulation of promotions and marketing campaign
  • Flexible post-loan processing, immediate loan extension evaluation
  • Real-time account information update and non-stop services
  • Quick access for ecosystem partners via standard open APIs
  • Highly standardized products in which customers can easily understand
  • Fast deployment which can go live within two months

"Amid the ongoing pandemic, the solution comes at the right time for financial institutions. It can satisfy the demands of efficient lending and loaning for both financial institutions and customers during such special times. Within this industry, we will continue to develop a global ecosystem and scenario-based solutions from 2C to 2B with global partners," said Jason Cao, President of Global Financial Services Business Unit, Enterprise Business Group at Huawei. "Together with customers and partners in the industry, we will start with 5G and seize the opportunities across five major tech domains — connectivity, cloud, computing, AI, and industry applications. Ultimately, we will provide scenario-based smart solutions and technologies to facilitate the digital transformation for financial customers."

Hongan Li, Senior Vice President of Sunline, added, "Sunline is a global banking IT service company. We keep innovating to lead in FinTech and enrich the interconnection of life. During COVID-19, we realized the urgent need for technological innovation, digital services, and open financial services global wide. In light of this, Sunline and Huawei are now launching the Digital Loan One Box Solution. The solution is designed for financial institutions and customers, especially for those lacking technology capabilities. It is based on Sunline’s enterprise-level microservices framework for banks. The agile platform features high flexibility, loose coupling, high performance, and distributed deployment. It meets the dynamic horizontal scaling requirements of financial institutions of any size at both the business and system demands. Our aim is to provide a solution that is practical and helpful in this extraordinary time."

Huawei and its partners help financial institutions reach a new digital peak in financial inclusion, data-driven business innovation, and open banking, achieving full connectivity and service agility.

The following table sets forth the estimated amount of the sources of distribution for purposes of Section 19 of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, and the related rules adopted thereunder. The Fund estimates the following percentages, of the total distribution amount per share, attributable to (i) net investment income, (ii) net realized short-term capital gain, (iii) net realized long-term capital gain and (iv) return of capital or other capital source. These percentages are disclosed for the current distribution as well as the fiscal year-to-date cumulative distribution amount per share for the Fund.

Shareholders should not draw any conclusions about the Funds investment performance from the amount of this distribution or from the terms of the Funds managed distribution policy. The amounts and sources of distributions reported in this 19(a) Notice are only estimates and are not being provided for tax reporting purposes. The actual amounts and sources of the amounts for tax reporting purposes will depend upon the Funds investment experience during the remainder of its fiscal year and may be subject to changes based on tax regulations. The Fund will send you a Form 1099-DIV for the calendar year that will tell you how to report these distributions for federal income tax purposes.

Subject to the foregoing, the Fund estimates (as of the date hereof) that it has distributed more than its income and net realized capital gains for the fiscal year ending November 30, 2020; therefore, a portion of your distribution may be a return of capital. A return of capital may occur for example, when some or all of the money that you invested in the Fund is paid back to you. A return of capital distribution does not necessarily reflect the Funds investment performance and should not be confused with ˜yield or ˜income.

Presented below are return figures, based on the change in the Funds Net Asset Value per share (NAV), compared to the annualized distribution rate for this current distribution as a percentage of the NAV on the last business day of the month prior to distribution record date.

^^ Cumulative distribution rate is the cumulative amount of distributions paid during the Funds fiscal year ending November 30, 2020 based on the Funds NAV as of August 31, 2020.

*Cumulative total return is based on the change in NAV including distributions paid and assuming reinvestment of these distributions for the period December 1, 2019 through August 31, 2020.

**The 5-year average annual total return is based on change in NAV including distributions paid and assuming reinvestment of these distributions and is through the last business day of the month prior to the month of the current distribution record date.

While the NAV performance may be indicative of the Funds investment performance, it does not measure the value of a shareholders investment in the Fund. The value of a shareholders investment in the Fund is determined by the Funds market price, which is based on the supply and demand for the Funds shares in the open market.

About DEX

The Fund’s primary investment objective is to seek current income, with a secondary objective of capital appreciation. The Fund invests globally in dividend-paying or income-generating securities across multiple asset classes, including but not limited to: equity securities of large, well-established companies; securities issued by real estate companies (including real estate investment trusts and real estate industry operating companies); debt securities (such as government bonds; investment grade and high risk, high yield corporate bonds; and convertible bonds); and emerging market securities. The Fund also uses enhanced income strategies by engaging in dividend capture trading; option overwriting; and realization of gains on the sale of securities, dividend growth, and currency forwards. There is no assurance that the Fund will achieve its investment objectives.

Under normal market conditions, the Fund will invest: (1) at most 60% of its net assets in securities of U.S. issuers; and (2) at least 40% of its net assets in securities of non-U.S. issuers, unless market conditions are not deemed favorable by the Manager, in which case, the Fund would invest at least 30% of its net assets in securities of non-U.S. issuers; and (3) the Fund may invest up to 25% of its net assets in securities issued by real estate companies (including real estate investment trusts and real estate industry operating companies). In addition, the Fund utilizes leveraging techniques in an attempt to obtain higher return for the Fund.

The Fund has implemented a managed distribution policy. Under the policy, the Fund is managed with a goal of generating as much of the distribution as possible from net investment income and short-term capital gains. The balance of the distribution will then come from long-term capital gains to the extent permitted, and if necessary, a return of capital. Even though the Fund may realize current year capital gains, such gains may be offset, in whole or in part, by the Funds capital loss carryovers from prior years.

Currently under the Funds managed distribution policy, the Fund makes monthly distributions to common shareholders at a targeted annual distribution rate of 6.5% of the Funds average net asset value (NAV) per share. The Fund will calculate the average NAV per share from the previous three full months immediately prior to the distribution based on the number of business days in those three months on which the NAV is calculated. The distribution will be calculated as 6.5% of the prior three months average NAV per share, divided by 12. The Fund will generally distribute amounts necessary to satisfy the Funds managed distribution policy and the requirements prescribed by excise tax rules and Subchapter M of the Internal Revenue Code. This distribution methodology is intended to provide shareholders with a consistent, but not guaranteed, income stream and a targeted annual distribution rate and is intended to narrow the discount between the market price and the NAV of the Funds common shares, but there is no assurance that the policy will be successful in doing so. The methodology for determining monthly distributions under the Funds managed distribution policy will be reviewed at least annually by the Funds Board of Trustees, and the Fund will continue to evaluate its distribution in light of ongoing market conditions.

The payment of dividend distributions in accordance with the managed distribution policy may result in a decrease in the Funds net assets. A decrease in the Funds net assets may cause an increase in the Funds annual operating expenses and a decrease in the Funds market price per share to the extent the market price correlates closely to the Funds net asset value per share. The managed distribution policy may also negatively affect the Funds investment activities to the extent that the Fund is required to hold larger cash positions than it typically would hold or to the extent that the Fund must liquidate securities that it would not have sold, for the purpose of paying the dividend distribution. The managed distribution policy may, under certain circumstances, cause the amounts of taxable distributions to exceed the amount minimally required to be distributed under the tax rules, such excess will be taxable as ordinary income to the extent loss carry forwards reduce the required amount of capital gains distributions in that year. Investors should consult their tax advisor regarding federal, state, and local tax considerations that may be applicable in their particular circumstances.
