Former president Bill Clinton announced Monday that his foundation plans to offer antiretroviral treatment to at least 700,000 HIV-positive people in Africa and the Caribbean during the next five years. The William J. Clinton Presidential Foundation is currently working with officials from Rwanda, Mozambique, Tanzania, and several Caribbean nations to subsidize and strengthen existing HIV treatment programs to expand the number of patients given anti-HIV medications. Clinton also said he hopes the foundation eventually will be able to expand its efforts to other countries hit hard by AIDS, including India and Russia.
