NPR Interviews First Lady of Haiti About Country's Progress Against HIV

July 26, 2012

As delegates from around the world convene for the XIX International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2012), NPR correspondent Michel Martin "speaks to Haiti's First Lady Sophia Martelly about the Caribbean island's progress against the epidemic and challenges that persist" in this interview from NPR's "Tell Me More." "I think the first thing I really would like people -- not even to do, but to remember that, as I said previously, we are moving forward," she says, adding, "It's not about HIV. It's not about earthquake. We are real. We are beautiful and we are making tremendous progress," according to the interview transcript (7/25).
