Notes
The triennial Synod of the Church of the Province of Southern Africa met in Kwazulu Natal from 3-7 July 2005 and passed a number of important resolutions. It "voted to step up its programme of education of lay and ordained church leaders in order to break the HIV/AIDS stigma and develop effective responses to the disease at the parish level". Synod also voted to establish a gender task team and called on governments in southern Africa to "take responsibility for the provision of care to orphans and vulnerable children in their countries and to ensure that their rights are protected". As well, "Diocesan bishops will also be asked to create mechanisms in their dioceses whereby parishes are equipped to follow up on the health and welfare of babies in their churches and communities so that children at risk can be identified and protected from infant mortality, domestic violence and child abuse". The synod also debated the issue of homosexuality in the province and heard presentations from Bishop Peter Lee ("conservative" position) and Bishop David Russell ("liberal" position). "No resolution has been reached but Archbishop Ndungane said: `Our discussion and debate on this issue was of a high level of maturity and has broadened our thinking and understanding. The church will continue to listen to the voice of the people and engage on this issue'." In addition, a decision was made to change the official name of the province from Church of the Province of Southern Africa (CPSA) to Anglican Church of Southern Africa (ACSA). "`The name change will not come into effect immediately because it changes the constitution of the Anglican Church. It will only be finalised at the next session of the Provincial Synod in three years' time', said Archbishop Ndungane".

"Something is eluding us in the fight against AIDS. When travelling through southern and eastern Africa it is impossible to dodge the dour reality of how AIDS is annihilating the community life of village and neighbourhoods, once the cornerstone and strength of the African way of life". Young men and women who are exposed to the facts about HIV and AIDS from skilled educators are still becoming infected. The author visited and spoke with community workers in South Africa. She also visited SALAMA a PWRDF partner in Nampula, Mozambique, with very explicit education and awareness programs. "Program Coordinator Yolanda Napoleao was quite candid in saying information and knowledge is not enough, Stopping AIDS is about a personal journey that includes changing behaviour. Educators find it hard to know what triggers the change". In Nairobi, Kenya, the author visited Crisis Pregnancy Ministries of Kenya (CPMK), a small faith-based NGO which emphasizes abstinence. "Secular NGOs and governments are doing a great job as they focus on the technical aspects of the problem: treatment, use of condoms, protected sex, rights of women to negotiate safe sex, etc. But as many educators assert, it is behavioural change, specifically young men's behaviour, that will ultimately have a greater impact in the battle against AIDS. CPMK puts the onus on teens to change their behaviour. And an answer to what is eluding us in the fight against AIDS among youth might just be there. Given all the information and options, young teens might be better equipped to choose a life path that leads to change because they respect life and know that AIDS kills".
"This article is the first in a series". The author is "Development Program Coordinator: Africa, Primate's World Relief and Development Fund. She recently returned from a PWRDF partners visit to South Africa, Kenya and Mozambique."

"HIV kills proportionally more men, women and children who are poor. The overwhelming majority of people with HIV, some 95 per cent of the global total, live in the developing world." "But the dour reality of AIDS in Africa is that it is intrinsically linked to poverty and in Africa, women are the poorest of the poor. All statistics agree: women are the group most affected by AIDS in Africa ... As well as poverty, their vulnerability to HIV infection is related to biological differences, the sexual behaviour of their partners, the exercise of power, social attitudes, and pressures in a context where poverty has a feminine face." "An important facet of AIDS in Africa is that women and girls are the primary caregivers for those suffering from AIDS". "With the economic fabric of Sub-Saharan Africa rapidly disintegrating due to the impact of AIDS, people are pushed towards riskier behaviour. Young girls with neither skills nor education step into the roles of their sick or dying mothers and look for ways of providing for families for whom they have become the sole breadwinners. .... The situation forces them into precarious lifestyles, often involving the sex trade. In such a context, they have little ground to negotiate for safer sexual practices."

A three-day workshop was held at the Anglican Church of Kenya Guest House in Nairobi, Kenya, at the end of August 2006. Participants came from different parts of the CAPA [Council of Anglican Provinces of Africa] provinces and other bodies. "The five-year strategic place document on HIV/AIDS/TB/Malaria will enable CAPA to strengthen and scale up programmes within the Provinces. Most of the objectives of the initial five-year strategic plan document, titled 'Planning our response 2001', have been achieved." The new document reflects "the great need for a programmatic plan that will accommodate TB/Malaria in our intervention strategies".
