CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta Scores Interview with Rock Legend Bono

Entire Dialogue about Global Poverty, Health, Music Available Exclusively on ‘Paging Dr. Gupta’ Podcast

In an exclusive interview available in its entirety on CNN’s “Paging Dr. Gupta” podcast, U2 vocalist Bono detailed to CNN chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta the progress on aid commitments to Africa from some of the world’s richest countries in advance of next month’s G8 Summit.

Bono’s charitable organization, Debt Aids Trade in Africa or DATA, holds wealthier nations accountable for an unprecedented $25 billion promise to aid Africa in areas such as extreme poverty, trade, health, education, sanitation and debt forgiveness.

“On debt cancellation, I can tell you, Sanjay, and this it is a thrill for me to say, on this program, because people got out on the streets and marched, and spoke up seven, six, five years ago, 20 million children are going to school in Africa that weren't before,” Bono says in the interview.

“And that is one of the greatest feelings ever.”

Bono continues by detailing the aid and progress that still needs to happen.

“Well, there’s good news and bad news, Sanjay,” he said. “The good news is that aid is really working on the ground. There’s huge breakthroughs being made fighting the AIDS emergency and malaria…breakthroughs led by the United States, I might add. But the bad news is as a general compact with the poorest of the poor, the G8 is way off.”

Bono also comments about the U.S. presidential race, British Prime Minister Tony Blair, the life of a rock star, government corruption and the balance of his love of music with his passion to “save the world.”
