NBC Highlights Bush Efforts to Fight AIDS in Africa

Thursday's Today show gave NBC contributing correspondent Jenna Bush Hager - daughter of former President George W. Bush - the opportunity to devote a report to her father's efforts to fight AIDS.

As he introduced the piece, substitute co-anchor Carl Quintanilla gave President Bush credit for the federally funded program that he pushed for when he was in office. Quintanilla:


Ten years ago, HIV AIDS was a death sentence in Africa. When President Bush was in office, he launched a federally funded program to save lives called PEPFAR, a program still in effect under President Obama. Today, contributing correspondent Jenna Bush Hager is here to tell us about the recent trip to Africa which sounds amazing.
