John Edwards released today his plan to fight HIV/AIDS.

The loss from HIV/AIDS is almost beyond understanding. This is a fight for people’s lives. Wehave a moral imperative to do much more, and do it much better.

— John Edwards

The plan includes:

– Guaranteeing health insurance to every American – including HIV/AIDS patients — the care they need when they need it and expanding Medicaid to cover HIV-positive individuals before theyreach later stages of disabilities and AIDS.

– Fighting the disease in the African American and Latino communities, where the harm is now greatest.

-Calling for universal access to HIV/AIDS medicine across the world, investing $50 billion overfive years to meet that goal.
