Calls on every candidate from every Party to commit to creating a National

HIV/AIDS Strategy

WASHINGTON, Sep. 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Former Senator and Presidential candidate John Edwards today released a policy paper calling for a "comprehensive strategy to combat HIV/AIDS." Among the details, Senator Edwards called for ensuring that every person living with HIV/AIDS has access to quality care and treatment, ensuring that the U.S. focuses resources on fighting the disease in African-American and Latino communities where the harm is now the greatest and calling for universal access to treatment throughout the entire world.

Senator Edwards becomes the first candidate to respond to the HIV/AIDS "Call to Action" calling on every Presidential candidate to commit to developing a results-oriented national AIDS strategy to reduce HIV infection rates, ensure access to care and treatment and eliminate racial disparities.
