April Ryan sat down with former President Bill Clinton for an interview on a wide range of topics on the radar in Washington, including women in the global economy, healthy drinking water, saving Africa’s elephants, the rebuilding of Haiti and making it a viable part of the global economy, the fight against poverty, and issues of health care.
Q. On Haiti We are not hearing a lot about Haiti since it has been years after the deadly earthquake, but you have kept an eye on the country with visits there and through your CGI. Give us a status report on the rebuild of haiti and working to make it a viable part of the global economy.
Q. Over the years one of your continuing efforts through the CGI is to combat poverty. AT the CGI Bill Gates said “we have a chance in the next 15 years to largely eliminate inequity.” Realistically, what are you’re expectations in the the coming years on fighting poverty in some of the poorest nations around the world particularly in Africa when the global economy is still suffering? And here in the United States, with sequestration and are facing a government shutdown? Mr. President, some global health issues in parts of the world are considered a national security risk. Why is wellness and health care particularly in this country still such a hurdle after we have seen diseases ravage some world communities?
Q. The Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation is a reality.
Looking back did you ever think you and your family would be so transformational from Arkansas to the White House, to Capitol Hill, to the State Department and more opportunities and possibilities are still on the horizon.
What do you think about that?
