U2’s Bono Can See An End to AIDS
U2’s Bono says a world without AIDS isn’t far away. Still, the activist-rocker told ABC’S “This Week” on World Aids Day there’s a danger that complacency could set in as the goal grows nearer.
Bono has been active in the fight against AIDS for years. He adds that the U.S. deserves a lot of the credit for the accomplishments made so far, because the American people have been behind the cause.
The singer admits he objected when former President George W. Bush established America’s own PEPFAR program to work toward eradicating the disease, instead of putting the U.S. support into the Global Fund. But he says the two programs have ended up complimenting each other, and together are making a world without AIDS a possibility.
