He will share personal stories about his time in Africa and his unique role in creating and implementating the President's Emergency Plan For Aids Relief, and Malaria Initiative. He will also share how advocacy organizations, like the ONE Campaign, are helping to build the political will among American voters and policy makers to sustain and promote these life–saving programs
