NPR: Clinton Reveals Blueprint For An 'AIDS-Free Generation'
Before Secretary of State Hilary Rodham Clinton passes the reins to her successor, she's got a few loose ends to tie up. One of them is mapping out the U.S.'s continuing efforts to combat AIDS around the world. So today she unveiled a blueprint for what she called an "AIDS-free generation." Now Clinton isn't talking about ending the HIV pandemic altogether. Rather, she hopes to prevent most new infections from occurring in the first place and to stop HIV-positive people from developing AIDS (Knox, 11/29).
