Clinton Foundation Pledges $10M for AIDS

Monday, 11 April 2005 12:00 AM

About 15,000 to 25,000 children are currently receiving treatment against the virus that causes AIDS, nearly half of them in Brazil and Thailand, Clinton said at a news conference in his Harlem office.

The William J. Clinton Foundation is working with UNICEF and other organizations to expand the program to reach more than 60,000 children by the end of 2006.

The Clinton Foundation partners with more than a dozen countries in Africa, the Caribbean and Asia. Working with individual governments, the foundation provides technical assistance and mobilizes human and financial resources. It also provides access to HIV/AIDS drugs and diagnostics that are 50 to 90 percent lower than market rates. Approximately 40 countries are purchasing medicines and tests under the Clinton Foundation's agreements.
