Recognizing the Role of Christians in Global Effort to Eradicate AIDS

July 26, 2012

In this Washington Post opinion piece, Richard Stearns, president of World Vision U.S., examines the role that Christians have played in the global effort to eradicate AIDS, noting the XIX International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2012) is being held in Washington, D.C., this week. "Two decades ago, no one would have predicted that Christians would so quickly change their response to the HIV and AIDS epidemic from criticism to compassion," he writes, and provides a history of the Christian response. He concludes, "As thousands gather for the International AIDS Conference this week, with the end of AIDS in sight, let's focus on our role and responsibility as Christians in continuing this important work until we truly achieve an AIDS-free generation" (7/25).
