God, AIDS, Africa & HOPE

pensée of a Catholic priest

12.04.2010 New strategic plan..

South Africa has a new strategic plan to combat HIV and AIDS and this month, a massive roll out in advertising for VCT, voluntary counseling and testing will start. It is amazing to see what the Soccer World cup 2010 can accomplish. What still has to be seen is how this massive drive is financed and how we continue with it after the world cup. Too often I have seen big plans and little action – so I will wait and see what comes out. Let’s cross our thumbs that South Africa does the right choice and follows through.. it would have an amazing effect on the death numbers due to HIV and AIDS.

HIV, AIDS and HOPE – thoughts of a Catholic priest

Being a Roman - Catholic priest and working in the fields of HIV and AIDS in Africa is often a challenge. Living in Africa has also its challenges. On the other hand I feel very much blessed having all the three. So you will find stories and reflections about my work, about the church, South Africa and Africa and essential information and developments in the field of HIV and AIDS. And in between personal stories and thoughts. You are most welcome to leave a comment or to get in touch with me - blogs - "thinking loud" so to speak is a ways of communication and exchange of ideas.
