The Clinton Health Access Initiative, which has focused on reducing the cost of HIV medicine in sub-Saharan Africa, currently accounts for about two thirds of the foundation’s annual income and expenses, according to disclosures online. The promise to carve it out of the foundation aims to quash concerns that donors might try to seek special access in a Clinton White House.
