"The Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) recognizes and values the efforts carried out by religious groups in care and treatment of people living with HIV infection and AIDS. This is the first of what UNAIDS hopes will be several documents reporting on the work of leaders from different religions (Christian, Islamic, Hindu and Buddhist) addressing the challenge of HIV and AIDS from their own religious perspective. .... In order to start this process of collaboration UNAIDS supported a workshop to which 62 leading academic theologians from Christian traditions were invited. It took place in Windhoek, Namibia in [8-11] December 2003". -- Background, p. [2].

Notes
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".
