Date:11/29/2007

ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia, Nov. 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- U.S. Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton today pledged to expand the U.S. government commitment to malaria to US$1 billion a year if elected, setting the goal of ending malaria-related deaths in Africa by the end of her second term.
