"Nutrition key in fighting AIDS" - Clinton
From Sunday's Washington Post:
Former President Clinton said Sunday that keeping HIV-infected children in the developing world well-fed amid the pressures of skyrocketing global food and fuel prices will be crucial to fending off the deadly virus.
Almost five out of every six people on our planet live in developing countries. Increasingly, leaders such as President Bush and Secretary of Defense Robert M. Gates are acknowledging that U.S. national interests - economic, security and moral - are entwined with the stability and opportunity that exists in some of these desperate places. The U.S. public knows this, too. In a recent poll, more than two-thirds of likely voters said the U.S. should be doing more to respond to the recent spike in global food prices.
