he Obama administration has unveiled an ambitious roadmap to stop the spread of AIDS across the globe, which infected 2.5 million people last year. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who ordered the blueprint, said Thursday that the key to combating AIDS is treating people with HIV sooner, treating more pregnant women, keeping them on treatment after their babies are born, and increasing access to condoms to prevent infection. "Make no mistake about it, HIV may well be with us into the future but the disease that it causes need not be," Clinton said.
