Philippines: bishops pledge help in AIDS fight

Catholic World News - January 27, 2011

The Catholic bishops of the Philippines have announced their plans to work aggressively for efforts to combat the spread of AIDS and to help victims of the disease. But the Church leaders stressed that they would not approve condom-giveaway programs.

The local director of a UN AIDS team said that is is “logical that you work closely with the Church” in the Philippines. He acknowledged: “The Church has done remarkable things in all parts of the world and these include the years of prevention, treatment, support and care for the people living with HIV.”
