Date:10/26/2007

WASHINGTON, Oct. 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today Senator Hillary Clinton pledged that, if elected US President, she will deliver on a range of bold, new policies to address global HIV/AIDS, the plight of orphaned children, women's rights, and related issues.

Clinton also pledged to "improve the coordination and effectiveness of US development assistance by exploring the creation of a cabinet-level poverty-focused development agency."

"Senator Clinton is demonstrating the leadership we need to win in the fight against global AIDS and make our anti-poverty investments more cost effective," said Dr. Paul Zeitz, Executive Director of the Global AIDS Alliance Fund.

"By signing this pledge, she builds on her strong record as an advocate on AIDS and global poverty," Zeitz added.
