Ending AIDS

Ending AIDS

This PBS Newshour episode is worth watching in its entirety (9 minutes).

Some takeaways:

  1. The first confirmed long-term remission in a child infected from birth.
  2. The U.N. reached its 2011 goal of providing access to HIV treatment for 15 million people worldwide by 2015, nine months ahead of schedule.
  3. The U.N. goal of ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030 is in sight.
  4. Where we are today is the majority of the people we take care of take one pill a day and manage their illness very effectively and plan on living full lives.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
