Former President Clinton: There'll be AIDS vaccine before a cure

CHICAGO — Former President Bill Clinton says he believes there's going to be a vaccine for AIDS found before anyone discovers a cure for the disease, WBBM Radio reported.

He says while AIDS can be controlled, it's still increasing among women of color and the homeless. He says the latest problem in New York is women of color who are infected by their husbands and boyfriends who were infected in prison.

He spoke Nov. 11 at the Palmer House. The event kicked off a speaker series benefiting Chicago House, a non-profit organization that provides housing and assistance to individuals affected by HIV/AIDS.
