July 19, 2007
Former President Clinton on Tuesday visited a hospital in the Dominican Republic that provides treatment to HIV-positive children as part of an eight-day global tour of projects funded by the Clinton Foundation, the AP/Houston Chronicle reports. Clinton toured a playroom and the pediatric HIV/AIDS ward at the Robert Reid Cabral Children's Hospital in Santo Domingo, which an administrator said provides care to about 610 HIV-positive children and teenagers. About one-fourth of the children receive antiretroviral treatment. "It's an impressive facility," Clinton said, adding, "They do important work here."
