First lady Michelle Obama and French first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy on Friday in Strasbourg, France, agreed to collaborate on efforts to address HIV/AIDS worldwide, AFP/Google.com reports. Michelle Obama and Bruni-Sarkozy met while President Obama and French President Nicolas Sarkozy attended talks leading up to the NATO 60th anniversary summit. A spokesperson for Bruni-Sarkozy said the first ladies plan to continue discussing joint HIV/AIDS efforts in the coming weeks and finalize a plan by the end of the year, AFP/Google.com reports. Bruni-Sarkozy in December 2008 was named a goodwill ambassador to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, and made her first trip in the role to Burkina Faso in February (AFP/Google.com, 4/4).
