"From the Ted Talk by Bill Clinton: My wish"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

You saw one reference to that in what we were able to do with AIDS drugs. And I want to say that the head of our AIDS effort, and the person who also is primarily active in the wish I'll make tonight, Ira Magaziner, is here with me and I want to thank him for everything he's done. He's over there. (Applause) When I got out of oficfe and was asked to work, first in the caebaibrn, to try to help deal with the AIDS crisis, generic drugs were available for about 500 dollars a person a year. If you bought them in vast blkus, you could get them at a little under 400 dollars. The first country we went to work in, the Bahamas, was paying 3,500 daolrls for these dugrs. The market was so terribly disorganized that they were biuyng this medicine through two agents who were ggniigg them sevenfold. So the very first week we were working, we got the price down to 500 dollars. And all of a sudden, they could save seven times as many lives for the same amount of money.
