Bono to Bush: AIDS Drugs a Major Opportunity for Positive Global P.R.

For those of you who, like me, didn't know, Vanity Fair had a new guest editor this summer: the rock star and social activist, Bono (who says he would have become a journalist if the music thing hadn't worked out).  The magazine' July issue featured an outstanding section devoted entirely to Africa, including this article on antiretrovirals' Lazarus Effect on patients with AIDS.  For an interview and more on Bono's guest editor stint, click here for a video clip. President Bush has requested that spending on AIDS relief in Africa be doubled to $30 billion.  Laura Bush recently visited Africa to discuss AIDS and malaria efforts. On Monday, Bush discussed plans in an interview  for "Conversation on the Americas."  -AMS
