Clinton calls for $1 billion more for global AIDS fund

Clinton calls for $1 billion more for global AIDS fund

Former President Bill Clinton, speaking Wednesday at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington, D.C., called the current $300 million U.S. contribution to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Malaria and Tuberculosis a promising start, but said the United States' fair share should be about $1 billion more, the Baltimore Sun reports. He also said that Bush administration plans to seek tens of billions of dollars for homeland security should include provisions to fight AIDS in developing countries because rising HIV infection rates could threaten the stability of those countries and ultimately pose potential security threats to the United States.
