WASHINGTON (AP) — A task force created by President Bush and a panel from the Clinton era will work together on the new administration's AIDS agenda.

Health and Human Services Secretary Tommy Thompson said he recommended that the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV and AIDS continue, even though federal rules governing its existence were set to expire this year.

That group, created by former President Bill Clinton will work with a Cabinet-level AIDS task force that met for the first time Friday, Thompson said.
