AIDS activists met with White House AIDS Policy Director Sandra Thurman on Tuesday to discuss strategies for fighting the AIDS epidemic in Africa. The activists said they were pleased the White House listened to their concerns, and they planned to meet again next week. However, activist Eric Sawyer said AIDS groups would continue to protest Vice President Al Gore's position on a drug trade disagreement involving South Africa.
