Speaking to the Washington diplomatic corps at the State Department, Powell cited Brazil, Cambodia and Uganda as countries where the political elite’s “enlightened leadership” had helped reduce the impact of AIDS. Powell said President Museveni’s personal attention to AIDS prevention had been a main factor in a 50% drop in the HIV infection rate since 1992.
