Pope calls for prayer, treatment for those with HIV
November 30, 2016
At the conclusion of his November 30 general audience, Pope Francis recalled that the United Nations promotes December 1 as World AIDS Day.
“Millions of persons live with this disease, and only half of them have access to life-saving therapies,” he said. “I invite you to pray for them and for their loved ones and to promote solidarity, because even the poorest can benefit from adequate diagnosis and care.”
The Pope also called upon “all to adopt responsible behavior to prevent further spread of this disease.”
