War on AIDS declared

Published April 1, 2003


Anglicans throughout the world have been challenged to “raise up a new generation of children free from the scourge of HIV/AIDS.” The call came at the end of the Anglican Communion Mission Organizations Confer-ence, held Feb. 12-18.

Delegates heard that the church could be one of the greatest resources in the fight against HIV/AIDS but is one of the weakest because of reluctance to openly address issues of human sexuality.

Anglican churches in some of the worst hit areas of the world are taking a lead in the fight against HIV/AIDS, delegates were told.

Most Anglican churches in Africa are establishing an HIV/AIDS desk to co-ordinate the campaign.
