The Advent 1996 issue of the International Anglican Family Network "tells of just a few of the projects, linked with churches, which are trying to alleviate the suffering and halt the spread of the disease. In this terrible situation there are signs of hope." Article includes reports from 12 different countries.
Archbishop of Carey, the Most Rev. George Carey, and his wife Eileen, visited the London Lighthouse and CARA, an church run AIDS charity. Dr. Carey said that "AIDS is one of the most important issues facing the Anglican Church worldwide today."
"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:  a comprehensive, holistic and integrated approach by all stakeholders in dealing with the pandemic;  constructive and creative partnerships between governments, the private sector and the broad church of civil society organizations including faith communities; and  a huge resource mobilization in order to curtail the spread of the pandemic".
Sermon by the Bishop of London, the Rt. Rev. Richard Chartres, at the 10th anniversary service, held at the Guards Chapel, Westminster, to celebrate the life of the late Diana, Princess of Wales. "At a time when people are suspicious of rhetoric, the monarchy communicates by symbol and simple speech and the Princess brought her own gifts to this work. She was still only 26 when she shook the hand of a patient at the opening of the Middlesex Hospital's AIDS ward, the first in the UK. It is hard now to credit the degree of fear and prejudice which surrounded AIDS in the eighties. Those familiar with the field have no doubt that the Princess played a significant part in overcoming a harmful and even cruel taboo is a gesture which was not choreographed but sprang from a deep identification with those who were vulnerable and on the margin". "Her work in the very last year of her life for the victims of landmines also caught the popular imagination internationally and certainly accelerated the adoption of the Ottawa Convention, banning the use of weapon which disproportionately kills and maims women and children. She proved the eloquence of embrace and touch which of course have been used by royal healers through the centuries. And as she said 'the biggest disease today is not leprosy or TB but the feeling of being unwanted'." "Let this service mark the point at which we let her rest in peace and dwell on her memory with thanksgiving and compassion while we pray in the words of St. Paul for all those who serve our country as members of the Royal Family and most especially for the sons who were so precious to her".
