The "Blueprint for an AIDS-free Generation," (.pdf) released on Thursday by U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, "shows that upfront investments to support the rapid scale-up of lifesaving AIDS treatment will yield significant savings -- of both lives and dollars -- in the near future," Archbishop Desmond Tutu, archbishop emeritus of Cape Town, South Africa, writes in the Huffington Post's "Impact" blog. "For the Blueprint to be a success, the funding to implement it must be secured," Tutu writes, adding, "Advocates will need to lobby President Obama to ensure that specific targets are attached to the Blueprint, that progress is tracked and that adequate resources are allocated quickly to fund accelerated, up-front investments." He continues, "That's no small order in the current global economic environment and in light of the political gridlock in Washington over plans to correct the U.S. federal deficit."
