BARCELONA, Spain - Former President Bill Clinton said at the 14th International AIDS Conference here last night that he regretted not having done more about AIDS while he was president and that he erred in not supporting funding for needle exchange programs to prevent the virus' spread among drug users. In an interview with reporters after a conference session, Clinton also urged leaders in Africa, the Caribbean and Asia - regions that have been hit hard by acquired immune deficiency syndrome - to speak out forcefully and develop plans to stop the spread of HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.

PRETORIA, South Africa - No one said Nelson Mandela would be an easy act to follow. Not many politicians would be eager to be measured against the prisoner-turned-president who is revered as nearly holy by his nation and most of the world. But few South Africans could have predicted the trouble that Mandela's heir has had the past few months. After an ambitious start in office a little more than a year ago, President Thabo Mbeki, 58 - the gifted former deputy president and Mandela's designated successor - has become the object of ridicule, a remote president out of touch with his people, a liability, critics say, not a leader.

WASHINGTON -- The global AIDS epidemic is worsening faster than experts earlier believed, according to new figures released yesterday by the World Health Organization.WHO predicted in 1988 that there would be a cumulative total of 15 million to 20 million adults infected with human immunodeficiency virus, which causes AIDS, by the year 2000. But in the last four years, substantial increases in infections in sub-Saharan Africa and South and Southeast Asia have suggested that the 15 million to 20 million total may be reached by the mid- or late 1990s, the agency said in a report.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Used kitty litter, fake blood, real spit -- the projectiles favored by ACT UP San Francisco are purposefully gross for maximum shock value. Even more incendiary than the group's medium, though, is the message it seeks to convey with such brazen tactics: HIV does not cause AIDS and, in fact, AIDS doesn't exist. In a city that is gay America's unofficial capital, this is like shouting in a synagogue that the Holocaust never happened. And with much the same expected result -- ACT UP SF is a pariah in the world of AIDS activism.
