Anglican Churches Announce Five-Year, $2.2 Million Plan to Combat HIV/AIDS, TB, Malaria in Africa

February 26, 2007

The Council of Anglican Provinces in Africa on Thursday announced a five-year, $2.2 million plan to curb the spread of HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria on the continent, VOA News reports. The plan's foremost priority is to combat HIV/AIDS through education, leadership and counseling and to support HIV-positive people. The program's secondary focus will be the prevention and care of TB and malaria (Majtenyi, VOA News, 2/22). The program also includes efforts to improve communication; strengthen health, education and sustainability; and focus on poverty reduction and gender equity. The plan will be rolled out in all 12 CAPA provinces and the Diocese of Egypt (CAPA release, 2/23). CAPA first launched a plan in its 12 provinces to combat the three diseases in 2001 (VOA News, 2/22).
