What has Bono achieved with his political work?

Does anyone have the statistics or info on what Mr B has achieved through his activism and political work? I'm very interested to see a positive angle as opposed of the recent bashing he has recieved in light of his acceptance of a knighthood. Thanks in advance good people of the board.

From the redcampaign.org website:

(RED) sales in the U.S. in the first six weeks since launch have raised enough money to:

Provide more than 40,000 people with ARV treatment for a year
(Note: These treatments are only a small portion of a person's overall treatment and represent just one year of lifelong treatment.)

Provide more than 2 million peer educators with HIV training

Provide a year's worth of school materials and daily hot meals for more than 86,000 children orphaned by AIDS

Provide more than 1 million Rapid Tests which detect HIV and deliver instant test results.*

As far as I remember, it was a pledge by the G7 nations. The realization is, I think, remains unseen yet.. Correct me if I'm wrong though..

As to what Bono has achieved? One either loves or hates him
