Even George got it right sometimes

According to a 2009 study published in Annals of Internal Medicine,[6] the program had averted about 1.1 million deaths inAfrica and reduced the death rate due to AIDS in the countries involved by 10%.[7][8]

Whether your country could afford it of course is another matter...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/President's_Emergency_Plan_for_AIDS_Relief

The link needs some fixing.

George W. Bush was, and is, a compassionate man.

Sadly, money spent in foreign aid does not always do the good for which it is intended. Any success is to be applauded.

But--if you compare the success of private efforts to public ones, which is more efficient? Have governments usually been as efficient as the Bill Gates foundation, or the Howard Hughes foundation?
