Twenty-two members of the Commission from every corner of the Anglican Communion gathered at the Kempton Park Conference Centre in South Africa for the first meeting of the Inter-Anglican Standing Commission on Mission and Even. The group heard presentations about the reality of AIDS in South Africa and heard that "last year 250,000 South Africans died from AIDS. This number will double in six years". The group published a document entitled "A Call" and invited all dioceses, parishes and local churches, to consider the document and send their responses to the Mission Department of the Anglican Communion Office. [Full text of document reproduced here.]
Also includes an "HIV/AIDS -Factfile" and brief reports from USPG supported health projects in Malawi, South Africa and Zambia.

Notes
South Africa has many natural advantages but also faces many problems including: AIDS/HIV, 30 % unemployment, poverty, lack of empowerment among disadvantaged groups, violence against women, crime and corruption. The author was tremendously impressed with the spirituality and community spirit he observed at the worship at St. Mary Magdalene's church in the township of Guguletu. While attending meetings of the International Anglican Standing Committee on Ecumenical Relations (IASCER) the author and others met with Archbishop Njongonkulu Ndungane and others. "The significance lay with their optimism in that while apartheid is behind them, the work of the CPSA, in building community and opportunity, continues".

Notes
The author, Archbishop of Cape Town and Primate of the Church of the Province of Southern Africa, reflects on the recent AIDS 2002 Conference in Barcelona Spain. "The key challenges are to change behavioural patterns and to eradicate the stigma that makes it so difficult for people to seek the help they need. Above all we dare not lose hope. We cannot allow ourselves to be paralysed by despair". After reviewing governmental and NGO actions and strategies, he goes on to say: "I offer a committed strategic `Partnership for Life' on behalf of the more that 70 million Anglicans worldwide, who have commissioned me to drive a programme that is working towards a `Generation without AIDS'. We do not have huge amounts of money but we do reach deep into every community. We are often located where there is no Post Office or electricity and we acknowledge our own responsibility in the AIDS arena. I extend my hand and heart to government in this partnership. The leaders of this nation must collaborate, and speak as one, and together build on the dreams and hopes for our people. We must eliminate the fear fuelled by misinformation and dithering about response and responsibility. We must unite in a stand for hope".

In October 2002 nine members of the Compass Rose Society, led by Canon John Peterson, visited the Diocese of the Highveld in South Africa at the invitation of Bishop David Beetge. "Our primary purpose for visiting the area was to understand better the scourge of HIV/AIDS in Africa, and to experience how the Diocese of the Highveld is dealing with the problem. In the townships and shanties, some 38 to 50 percent of the population are HIV positive. A similar number are unemployed". Among the ministries the group visited was the clown ministry at the Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital in Soweto, begun by a Swiss man, Andre Poulie. The Compass Rose group included Canadian Canon Philip Poole from Trinity Church, Aurora.

A summary of some of the actions taken by the 30th Session of the Provincial Synod of the Church of the Province of Southern Africa (CPSA) gathered in Bloemfontein, South Africa from 23-28 September 2002. Among other motions the Synod passed one which "Acknowledges and gives thanks to God for the role played by gay and lesbian members of the CPSA" and "Encourages the welcoming and affirmation of all members regardless of their sexual orientation, in all the churches of the CPSA". The synod also "unanimously endorsed Archbishop Njongonkulu Ndungane's call for reduction in the risk of AIDS, including the correct use of condoms. ... Echoing the Archbishop's words, the Synod said `Condoms can save lives and effectively prevent the spread of HIV -- the virus that causes AIDS -- when used correctly. The morality of condoms is about preserving life'."

BBC reporter Siobhann Tighe interviewed the Most Rev. Njongonkulu Ndungane, Archbishop of Cape Town, about the Anglican Church's fight against HIV and AIDS in the African continent. In his comments, Archbishop Ndungane also discusses the importance of Ubuntu. "We've got to rediscover human values. After all Africans have a high doctrine of humanity. The whole philosophy of being human is couched in that wonderful African concept of UBUNTU: I am because we belong together."

Notes
Issue of IAFN Newsletter included as part of the Anglican World for Trinitytide 2004. An editorial and series of short reports from different agencies and countries assessing and looking back on "changes to family life over the decade" since the 1994 launch conference of the International Year of the Family in Malta. "The articles tell of the increasing number of single parent families and of projects to help them. Another development is the changing role of parents. In Africa, Myanmar and Sri Lanka, as well as in Western countries, some men are becoming more involved with the care of their children and more women are becoming breadwinners -- modifying the traditional demarcation of roles. The global nature of change is again highlighted in the article from Myanmar/Burma, which notes the pressures of modern technology on children, with videos and Superman replacing the transmission of values through storytelling. In Papua New Guinea, the influence of cultural change has resulted in improvements in education and literacy but also noted is an increase in violence within the family. In some countries, changes affecting families reflect the aftermath of civil violence. An article tells of the signs of hope in Rwanda, despite the horrors of the genocide. .... In Northern Ireland, too, there are signs of optimism despite the bitter legacy of the troubles. A major theme underlying many of the changes is the spread of HIV/AIDS. This was raised at the initial IYF [International Year of the Family] conference, but the extent and consequences of the pandemic have vastly intensified during the ten years, bringing heartbreak and poverty to many. The death toll affects all generations of the family, with grandparents having to care for orphans and losing the support of their children in their old age." "The final section of the newsletter tells of action taken by Governments to help families. A point made by many at the Malta conference was that Governments needed to recognise the importance of families as the basic unit of society and do more to help them. It is clear that further Government action is needed, but articles tell of steps forward.

"The Primate of Southern Africa, the Bishop of Washington and a canon from the Diocese of Florida have teamed up to win a $10 million grant to combat HIV/AIDS through the work of the Anglican church in southern Africa, the United States Agency for International Development announced this week. Archbishop Njongonkulu Ndungane, Bishop John B. Chane and the Rev. Canon Robert V. Lee of FreshMinistries, an ecumenical non-profit organization in Jacksonville, Florida, worked together on the grant which will allow the Church of the Province of Southern Africa to hire hundreds of young outreach workers and indigenous leaders who will be trained to offer age-appropriate instruction in AIDS prevention to children and young adults". "Mr. Lee said the program in southern Africa will be modeled on practices pioneered in Uganda where HIV/AIDS rated have dropped dramatically due to changes in sexual behavior. Among its priorities are teaching abstinence before marriage, increasing the number of people who know their HIV status, promoting open discussion about the disease, and decreasing the stigma that surrounds AIDS in much of Africa". "Both Archbishop Ndungane and Bishop Chane said the grant came at an important time for the Anglican Communion, which has experienced upheaval over its member provinces' conflicting teachings on homosexuality." "This is a wonderful example of how different provinces can work together to build God;s Kingdom, and witness to his Gospel', Ndungane said. `The needs of God's people mandate that we persevere with one another, rather than letting our differences tear the Communion apart'." From Episcopal News Service.

"`AIDS is not God's punishment for the wicked ... AIDS is a disease'. This quote from the primate of Southern Africa, the Most Rev. Njongonkulu Ndungane, is what scrolls across the home page of the new Anglican Church HIV and AIDS web site that was launched on 10 February [2005]. Consultant, Wendy Lewin, who helped set up the web site, said that the purpose was twofold. It would highlight what the Anglican Church was doing to address the HIV/AIDS pandemic and also support people running the Anglican Church HIV/AIDS projects across Southern Africa. It also doubles as a means of communication for funders and the HIV and AIDS office and also between people who are working on the ground, for whom it will be useful to compare notes and swap stories around their work. The website address is www.anglicanaids.org".

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".
