PRESIDENT BUSH VISITS AFRICA

07/10/03

Is the president's "Emergency AIDS Pledge" for real, or is it just broken promises? Over 15,000 people will die of AIDS in the countries Bush will visit during his nine-day trip. We talk to Dr. Paul Zeitz, Executive Director for the Global AIDS Alliance. The Alliance is issuing a "Pledge Watch" for the President's Africa trip. The president has promised three billion dollars per year for fighting AIDS in Africa, but so far the administration is seeking only 450 million dollars in actual money for the battle.
