Governor George W. Bush has made his first comments regarding HIV/AIDS issues, to be released today exclusively in the HIV medical journal and Internet guide, Numedx. Bush's response to AIDS, as well as Vice President Gore's, is presented in a Question & Answer debate format. Issues addressed include: Medicare, an AIDS vaccine, the Americans with Disabilities Act, AIDS in Africa, and medical marijuana. 
Presidential Candidates responses can be found at the Numedx web site: beginning today at 10:00 a.m. EDT. "We believe this to be only the first phase by both Presidential Candidates to address important issues surrounding HIV/AIDS in this country and globally," said Dave Purdy, Publisher of Numedx. In addition to responding to the Q&A format, both candidates have been formally invited to a debate exclusively on HIV/AIDS issues. "Vice President Gore has already agreed to participate," said Purdy. "We hope to be talking with Governor Bush's people within the next couple of weeks, they have also expressed interest." Numedx started the discussions with the Presidential Candidates back in January. "We were surprised to find out that there were candidates who did not have a single HIV/AIDS policy in place," said Purdy. "It's amazing what can happen when you just pick up the phone and ask why not?" Numedx is a quarterly HIV medical journal and Internet guide whose estimated half million readers are both healthcare providers as well as informed patients.
