IRIN/PlusNews Examines Role Faith-Based Organizations Play in Delivering Health Care in Africa
August 2, 2010
IRIN/PlusNews examines the role faith-based organizations (FBOs) play in delivering healthcare to populations in Africa, with a focus on HIV/AIDS treatment. FBOs "provide an estimated 30-70 percent of healthcare in Africa, says the health NGO, The Capacity Project," making them key in the fight to control the spread of HIV/AIDS throughout communities, the news service writes. The article also looks at how "ideological beliefs can interfere with HIV response," and polarize groups at high-risk for HIV/AIDS, and notes efforts to educate leaders of FBOs (7/30).
