Notes
The author organized a 1991 AIDS conference for the diocese of New Westminster and is rector of St. Martin, North Vancouver. "The pulpit remains a powerful instrument in the spread of the Gospel. Any preacher who understands AIDS as not worthy of mention or as a form of judgement will never hear of the impact of the disease within his or her own community".

"Faith leaders 'should shout from the rooftops that AIDS is not a punishment from God but a medical condition which is preventable,' the former leader of South Africa's Anglican church, Archbishop Njongo Ndungane, has told the World AIDS campaign. Bishop Ndungane was speaking in an interview for the World AIDS campaign ahead of the 20th anniversary of the marking of Dec. 1 as World AIDS Day."

"In the Nigerian city of Lagos, home to almost eight million souls, WACC [World Association for Christian Communication] works with Hope for HIV/AIDS International (HFA) to promote acceptance of people with HIV/AIDS. 'Mainstream society tends to ostracize whole families because of HIV/AIDS in violation of their rights', says Dr. Sarah Macharia, WACC's Kenya-born program manager for HIV/AIDS communication and stigma. So WACC is helping HFA sponsor a communication training program for Christian and Muslim clergy to combat the stigma. Upon completing the joint training program, Christian pastors receive a wooden cross tied with a red ribbon. Muslim imams get a wooden crescent tied with a red ribbon". "After training, clergy return to their congregations and act as communicators to challenge the stigmatization of affected people and their kin. The clergy remain the principal purveyors of information in their regular ongoing interactions with congregants. But at the same time, there's a 'knock-on effect in the congregations, a snowball effect', Macharia says".
