Uganda benefits from US AIDS funding; CBS 60 min report doesn't mention anti-gay bill

On CBS 60 Minutes tonight (April 4), Bob Simon reported on a program started during the Bush administration (in 2004) to provide money for anti-retroviral drugs to fight AIDS in Uganda. There is a large thrust toward abstinence education in Uganda with the churches, but promiscuity and “sugar daddies” (and the presence of other STDS’s) still contribute to apparently heterosexual spread.

Curiously, the report did not mention the draconian anti-gay law being considered in the Ugandan parliament, probably the most vitriolic in the world.
