Bill Gates Reflects on Event Recognizing World's Achievements Against AIDS
July 23, 2012
Noting the International AIDS Conference is being held in the U.S. for the first time in more than 20 years, Bill Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, reflects on an event with "government leaders, philanthropists, faith leaders, entrepreneurs and entertainers at the Kennedy Center's Eisenhower Theatre [Saturday] night to recognize what the world has achieved in turning the tide on AIDS," in this post in the foundation's "Impatient Optimists" blog. Gates says the event "offered a great stage to share success stories and talk about the importance of sustained HIV funding," and concludes, "Americans can be justifiably proud of the tremendous moral leadership that the U.S. has taken in producing breakthrough innovations in the fight against HIV" (7/22).
