africa? >> yeah. >> dave: how long ago was it? >> we just got back a few days ago, probably four, five days ago. we went to kenya and tanzania in southern africa. then we stopped for a day in liberia, pause because four people from our health access program were there the whole time through the ebola epidemic. they never left, and by the grace of god, they were never infected. but they worked on the front line. i'm really proud of them. ( applause ) so i wanted to help them-- we looked at our programs in the first two countries and then we talked about what's going to happen now in liberia and how they need to build a health care system so they can manage this and they'll never have an epidemic again. and then we went to morocco for a meeting of the clinton global initiative for africa and the middle east. the whole trip was fascinating. put i love going there and i love seeing people make
something out of nothing. i met a woman in tanzania who came to a vaccine clinic that we helped to stock. and you have to refrigerate vaccines. and it was way out in the country. the woman still had to walk 12 miles with her six-month-old baby just to get there. but it was the first time she'd ever been able to do that. and then i met some farmers in tanzania, including one woman with seven children who was farming one acre of land, and she almost tripled her yield joining this program we started with 85,000 farmers. and she added soybeans, and her income went up more than 300% because we lowered the price of the seed and fertilizer. and all of a sudden, all her kids can go to school, and she thinks she's really rich, you know. ( applause ) there are literally millions and
millions of people like that, that for very little money per farmer could feed their countries, export food, deal with this growing global population. so it was really rewarding. i loved it. >> dave: and this must be very satisfying, and this is money from the clinton global initiative, the clinton foundation? >> my foundation does these programs. the clinton global initiative is basically a network that we try to build and we rarely participate in the projects there. somebody comes and gets us and says, "you can do thissing, nobody else can," we do. but basically that's a network e that have pledged over a decade $100 billion that has already helped 430 million people in 180 countries. and it's all voluntary. for example, in america we've got some public and private pension funds that have committed $14 billion to retrofit buildings and make them
under energy efficient. they've already spent six million of it and created 50,000 jobs. no taxpayer money no, nothing just finding opportunity finding the investors to do it. it's going good. ( applause ) >> dave: because i have a card here, and i'll read some things, and please comment. clinton foundation, 9.9 million people are receiving hiv-aids treatment. remarkable. >> that's more than half the people in the world who get it. the reason is, we were able to pioneer more than 10 years ago now a big reduction in the price by getting the whole business model of the aids drugs changed. they were a low-volume, high-profit margin uncertain payment business. we made massive volume, low profit margin but certain payment.
and because of that, 70 countries have asked to us negotiate contracts that they buy aids medicine from. we don't touch the money. the money goes from the donors to these poor countries and they buy the drugs at that price. but it's had a dramatic-- a dramatic effect. and it's also lowered everybody else's prices. >> dave: back home in the united states, 15 million children have access to healthier food choices in their schools in the fight against childhood obesity. 15 million kids. >> the first lady, michelle obama is running this "let's move" program. she asked us to run-- our foundation and our alliance for a healthier generation that i did with the american heart association after i had our surgery. ( laughter ) and we do the school programs. the first thing we did was reach an agreement with the soft drink companies to reduce total calories in drink goes going to school by 90%. ( applause ) and then we worked on getting the-- then we worked on getting the meal more nutritious before
the new federal guidelines came in. then we worked on exercise programs before, during, and after schools. so we're trying to do our part there. and i think it's making a real difference. ( applause ). >> dave: yeah. i mean-- it's still unbelievable to me that we have kid in this country who are not getting enough food and then kids had this country who are obese. i mean, how do you reconcile that? >> actually, they're quite close. you know, they're basically on the knife edge of poverty one way or the other. there are people hoare food insecure, who don't get enough food stamps or whatever. and then there are people whose parents have barely enough to pay their bills and they work all theo they don't have time to prepare the food. so they buy food that is high in bulk high in caloric content low in nutritional value and they become obese. and they're very close to the people who are hungry.
and we've got to deal with both problems. >> dave: and then there is the other part of it, maybe the biggest part of all the corporations producing food like that because they know it's what people will end up buying. >> yeah, but-- and we're working with them. there are a lot of them that really want to change if we can make it possible to do what we did with aids medicine and the the soft drinks for them to make money if a lot of way. they'll take a lot of the sugar out of the food. they'll stop a lot of processed carbs. we have to keep working at it. we're making progress but we have a ways to go. >> dave: let me ask you another question areue put it in a percentage-- what's the chance of you moving back to 1600 pennsylvania? ( cheers and applause ). >> well-- first of all hillary has to win the nomination. if she wins the nomination, then she has to win the election.
if she wins the election the chances are 100% i'll move back. ( laughter ) if-- wait, wait-- if i'm asked. you know-- >> dave: you may not not be invited back. >> my experience haas since i left the white house when a president of either party asks you say yes. it would be a good thing for america if she wins. i hope she disncht what an amazing life this will-- has been and will continue to be for both of you. >> we have been so fortunate. it's funny how your perspective changes. i think having a grandchild made a big difference but we just sort of try to wake up every day in a good humor and be greatful and go out there eye urged her to just go out there and have a good time, tell the american people what she wanted to do, explain what the challenges are from her point of view and what we should do and just be grateful. we've had a wonderful life. and i'm grateful.
>> dave: well, we're very happy that you're here. ( applause ) and very impressed by what you've been able to do since you left the white house. i think at one point we discussed that maybe it's easier for a man or a woman to be more effective out of office, actually than when they're in office. >> you're about to find out. >> dave: by god i take that as a challenge. you're exactly right. >> we'll do it together. thank you. >> dave: president bill clinton, ladies and gentlemen. ( cheers and applause ) we'll be right back with adam sandler, everybody. ♪ ♪ ♪ ( applause )
