Mandela Tells Chrétien the West Needs to Help Africa With AIDS Crisis

April 9, 2002

Former South African President Nelson Mandela on Monday asked for help from the G-8 countries in the fight against the AIDS epidemic. Canadian Prime Minister Jean Chrétien is visiting Africa as president of the group of the world's eight most industrialized nations. "Give us the resources necessary to attack this problem," Mandela said after meeting with Chrétien, who is on a tour of Africa to prepare a plan for aid to the world's poorest countries. Several sub-Saharan African countries are among the world's poorest, and most HIV-infected people there have little hope of receiving AIDS drugs or proper medical care.
