Clinton Announces New AIDS Plan

A focus on global health seems to be a trait Mrs. Clinton shares with her do-gooder husband. On Thursday, Hillary Clinton unveiled a new "blueprint" guide to wiping out the AIDS virus globally, and aiming for "an AIDS-free generation." The President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief will focus on improving treatment and prevention worldwide. The secretary of state applauded a massive decrease in AIDS-related deaths (25 percent in six years), an increase in U.S.-funded anti-retroviral drug treatments, and a huge drop in HIV infections in developing countries. "We can reach a point where virtually no children are born with the virus," she said.
