President Clinton Discusses HIV Prevention in Malawi

August 2, 2013

"Former U.S. president Bill Clinton, on the last day of his visit to Malawi, Thursday said he would continue to support measures to fix the southern African country's efforts to address some of its biggest challenges in poverty reduction, health care and women empowerment," PANA/AfriqueJet reports. "Clinton, accompanied by daughter Chelsea, was speaking after visiting the Kamuzu Central Hospital, Lilongwe's main referral hospital," where he discussed his foundation's work to prevent mother-to-child HIV transmission and met with people living with HIV, the news service notes. "When I finish this trip, I just don't want to remember that I have been told that 96 percent of children from HIV-positive parents were born without HIV, but remember the call by the families saying that this should be done everywhere too," Clinton said, the news service writes. "Clinton was in Malawi to tour projects funded by the Clinton Development Initiative (CDI) and the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI), mainly in the agriculture and health sectors," PANA notes, adding Chelsea Clinton and Malawi President Joyce Banda also spoke (8/2).
