UNICEF goodwill ambassador Roger Moore, the star of several James Bond films, has joined the quest to secure HIV antiretroviral medications for HIV-positive people living in sub-Saharan Africa. Moore, speaking last week in Zambia, called efforts to get cheap anti-HIV drugs "daunting" but added that he "will not relent" in pushing governments and drug companies to provide free or discounted drugs to HIV-positive Africans. Zambia, the focus of Moore's African visit, currently has an HIV prevalence rate of about 20%, and nearly 1 million children in the country have lost one or both parents to AIDS.
