EDWARDS PROPOSES GENERIC DRUG EXPANSION ABROAD TO FIGHT AIDS

NOVEMBER 01, 2007

Democratic presidential hopeful John Edwards pledged to use US trade policies to ensure that undeveloped countries can buy generic drugs at ?fair prices.? That initiative was unveiled as part of the former North Carolina senator?s proposal to step up the government?s involvement in the fight against AIDS. His proposal would also significantly increase the Medicaid prescription drug program by allowing people who test positive for HIV to qualify for benefits earlier in the disease process.

?We can?t talk seriously about ending HIV/AIDS without guaranteeing health for every single man, woman, and child in America,? Edwards said in remarks prepared for a health care forum in Washington, DC. ?Let me be blunt: If you don?t have health insurance?good health insurance?you are substantially more likely to die from this disease.?
