Christian charities unite to fight HIV
Christian aid agencies have joined secular charities in warning that the international community needs to work harder to tackle HIV.
The diverse group of organisations, meeting at Lambeth Palace as the UK Consortium on AIDS and International Development, say that stronger action is needed or the world will fail to meet its targets on HIV reduction. The Bishop of Wakefield opened the conference with a message from the Archbishop of Canterbury.
Experts at the conference from groups like Christian Aid, Christian Medical Fellowship, Islamic Relief and the Salvation Army launched a report called Keeping the Faith. It calls for greater recognition of the key role played by faith-based organisations in responding to the HIV crisis.
