Leaders Stress Need to Break the Silence Over HIV/AIDS in the Arab World

November 8, 2006

International Muslim and Christian leaders meeting at the Arab League in Cairo have called for the Arab world to "break the silence" about HIV/AIDS. "The epidemic is still new to our countries, but the continual increase in the number of new cases and the weakness of the fundamental developmental structure to prevent HIV sets off the alarm bells for the necessity of quick mobilization," said Amat al-Alim al-Soswa, director of the UN Development Program's regional Arab bureau. "I repeat that this mobilization must take place now, before it's too late." Some 300 religious and political leaders from 20 Arab states attended the conference.
