Bono's efforts to eliminate AIDS in Africa was among the topics in HBO's hour-long documentary Countdown to Zero, and in the Vice-produced special, former president George W. Bush talked about working with the U2 singer to help the continent improve their medical facilities through the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). Bush spoke glowingly about Bono and shared an amusing anecdote about the first time he met the singer.
However, Bush's initial concerns that the Bono meeting was just a publicity stunt were quickly assuaged. "Bono came in and floored me with his knowledge, his energy, and his faith," Bush said, adding of PEPFAR's continued success, "We had a comprehensive program. Our teams worked with each country to develop a program specific to their cultures and needs and politics."
