Notes
"HIV kills proportionally more men, women and children who are poor. The overwhelming majority of people with HIV, some 95 per cent of the global total, live in the developing world." "But the dour reality of AIDS in Africa is that it is intrinsically linked to poverty and in Africa, women are the poorest of the poor. All statistics agree: women are the group most affected by AIDS in Africa ... As well as poverty, their vulnerability to HIV infection is related to biological differences, the sexual behaviour of their partners, the exercise of power, social attitudes, and pressures in a context where poverty has a feminine face." "An important facet of AIDS in Africa is that women and girls are the primary caregivers for those suffering from AIDS". "With the economic fabric of Sub-Saharan Africa rapidly disintegrating due to the impact of AIDS, people are pushed towards riskier behaviour. Young girls with neither skills nor education step into the roles of their sick or dying mothers and look for ways of providing for families for whom they have become the sole breadwinners. .... The situation forces them into precarious lifestyles, often involving the sex trade. In such a context, they have little ground to negotiate for safer sexual practices."

Archbishop Ndungane was commissioned at the recent Primates' Meeting to facilitate a workshop on AIDS "in order that a strategic plan for sub-Saharan Africa may be developed".

This statement announces that the workshop will take place in Gauteng, South Africa, 13-16 August 2001 and outlines the eight objectives in developing an integrated strategic plan.
