Senegal affirms commitment to fight against HIV/AIDS

New York- USA (PANA) -- Senegalese President Abdoulaye Wade affirmed Monday that his country would bring in its experience and the expertise of its researchers to beef up global efforts at containing HIV/AIDS.
Addressing the on-going special UN General Assembly session on AIDS, Wade regretted that medication was very expensive "due to the profit bent of firms.
" He denounced that stance, asserting that it was not only immoral but also "infringes on man's sacred and fundamental right to life.
" The Senegalese Press Agency quoted Wade as urging that beyond diplomatic niceties, the session should be "immediately followed by concrete and decisive action to save present and future generations.
" Some 3,000 participants from 189 countries are attending the forum, which runs through 27 June.
