CNN Interviews Bill Gates About Global AIDS Response

“While much progress has been made” in the effort to eradicate AIDS, an AIDS-free generation “is still a far way off,” Bill Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, said in an interview with CNN on Monday, after “attending President Barack Obama’s remarks on World AIDS Day at the White House.” “‘We are going to be living with some level of AIDS for decades to come,’ [Gates] told CNN’s ‘The Lead with Jake Tapper,'” the news service notes. “‘We don’t have a cure and so we have to keep them on drugs to keep them alive, and that requires not only generosity, but getting very innovative about how we reach that kind of a number. We need a vaccine, or a tool to prevent people from getting infection,’ said Gates,” CNN adds. The news service provides video footage of the interview (12/2).
