Chelsea Clinton Eyes Global Projects, Gay Rights

Tuesday May 28, 2013

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia -- Chelsea Clinton says she plans to become increasingly involved in the international health projects of her father's foundation and to speak out for gay rights.

The only child of former President Bill Clinton told The Associated Press that her focus will be on the Clinton Foundation's work in various countries, especially linked to health.

Clinton said Tuesday on the sidelines of a women's conference in Malaysia that she hopes to return to Southeast Asia, specifically Myanmar, where the foundation will work with local authorities to distribute medicine and health products, including HIV drugs and child vaccines, at cheaper prices.

Clinton visited Myanmar earlier this week at the start of initiative to provide water purification packets to areas with unsafe water supplies.
