Caritas cardinal calls for increased funding for children with HIV

Catholic World News - November 30, 2010

Caritas, the international consortium of Catholic relief and development agencies, is calling for increasing funding to treat the 2.5 million children who suffer from the HIV virus. 90% of these children live in Africa, but only 26% of African children are receiving lifesaving treatment.

“We need to give children with HIV the chance to live,” said Cardinal Oscar Rodríguez Maradiaga of Honduras, president of Caritas Internationalis. “Caritas asks governments and drug companies to support better and earlier testing and treatment for these children. This is a life or death situation.”
