 Bill Clinton to Campaign Against AIDS, Malaria in Africa, Mexico

Former US president Bill Clinton on Tuesday announced an upcoming trip to Africa and Mexico to promote new programs by his Clinton Foundation to fight AIDS and malaria.

"This year, I am excited to take our work to the next level with new projects that will make a tremendous difference in turning the tide of the HIV/AIDS, improve lives, and help people work toward a brighter future," Clinton said in New York.

He said his trip will begin next Tuesday with visits to Ethiopia, Rwanda, Liberia and Senegal, where he will meet with local officials and Clinton Foundation staff and members.

On his way back to the United States, Clinton said he would stop in Mexico to attend the August 3-8 International AIDS Conference in Mexico City.

The Clinton Foundation in 2002 launched an anti-AIDS initiative and this month has reached an agreement with several pharmaceutical companies to slash the price of the top anti-malaria treatment by 30 percent.
