Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will discuss the future of the AIDS epidemic in a speech on Tuesday at the National Institute of Health.
A press notice from her office indicates Clinton will outline a vision for turning the tide on AIDS, using knowledge gleamed over the past 30 years since the disease was diagnosed. Clinton may address new CDC statistics covering 2006 - 2009 that show that young men (age 13-29) who have sex with men accounted for 27% of all new American HIV infections in those years, while young men of color who sleep with men saw their infection rates skyrocket 48% in those years. As a world leader, Clinton will likely discuss the effect of AIDS on the Third World; 80% of all AIDS deaths now occur in sub-Saharan Africa.
Clinton's speech will begin at 11 a.m. at the offices of the National Institute of Health in Bethseda, Md.
