Addressing the 2003 UNA-USA Global Leadership Awards, Bono urged world leaders to get vital drugs into Africa to fight the AIDS pandemic.
'AIDS is still a problem in the U.S. and Europe, but what's going on in Africa is a different thing completely," he said, speaking on behalf of DATA at the New York ceremony. 'It's an emergency.'
He urged politicians to participate in the healing of a continent that is in dire need of assistance from the rich nations.
'Seven thousand Africans are dying every day of a preventable, treatable disease. And we have the drugs,' he said, underlining the crucial role the United States could play in combating the AIDS epidemic, which killed 2.3 million Africans in 2001.
