Notes
"This year, 2006, marks the 25th anniversary of the identification of AIDS, 10 years since the introduction of antiretroviral therapy, and five years since United Nations member states unanimously adopted the 2001 Declaration of Commitment on AIDS. And still, 25 years after the first AIDS cases were reported, there is no sign of a halt to the pandemic, which is likely to spread to every corner of the globe, said Peter Piot, head of the Joint United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS)".
Anglican Archbishop Njongonkulu Ndungane, Primate of the Church of the Province of Southern Africa, "outlined three priorities for achieving a world free from AIDS: [1] a comprehensive, holistic and integrated approach by all stakeholders in dealing with the pandemic; [2] constructive and creative partnerships between governments, the private sector and the broad church of civil society organizations including faith communities; and [3] a huge resource mobilization in order to curtail the spread of the pandemic".
