Blog Examines Faith-Based Response to HIV/AIDS

July 26, 2012

In a post in KPLU's "Humanosphere" blog, journalist Tom Paulson discusses the role of faith-based organizations in the response to HVI/AIDS, writing, "PEPFAR is mentioned in perhaps every other speech here at the International AIDS Conference, AIDS 2012, as one of those game-changers. Infrequently, some folks also mention, usually just in passing, something like the 'contributions of the faith-based community.' What's probably not appreciated is that U.S. leadership in responding to the global AIDS pandemic came together thanks to an unusual partnership of evangelical Christians and very secular AIDS activists, isolationist conservatives and bleeding-heart liberals" (7/25).
