World Bank Launches New Strategy to Combat AIDS in Africa


With the HIV/AIDS epidemic now 25-years-old, the World Bank has launched a new strategy to combat the disease where it is the most prevalent -- Africa. Nearly two million have died on the continent and HIV has cost the World Bank $1.6 billion. In Washington this week, World Bank officials said it's time to move away from an initial "emergency response" to a new four-year action agenda. Producer Zulima Palacio has the story. Carol Pearson narrates.
