Caritas Internationalis-- the consortium of international Catholic charitable agencies discussed by Pope Benedict in his first encyclical-- and the Embassy of the United States of America to the Holy See are jointly sponsoring a major conference in Rome on early treatment for children with HIV, particularly those who suffer from AIDS-related tuberculosis.
Dr. Miguel Díaz, the new US ambassador, is playing a major role as the moderator of a session whose speakers include the executive director of UNAIDS, the director of the Global AIDS Program at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and Archbishop Silvano Tomasi, the Holy See’s represenative to UN agencies in Geneva. The three-day conference concludes on October 16.
