Reflections / Gedanken

South Africa is on a good way… so they say…

In the speech of Helen Zille, premier of the Western Cape it sounded like this:

On health, Zille said the province’s HIV prevalence rate was “cause for grave concern”. In 2009, the provincial government set a target of reducing HIV prevalence from 16 percent to 8 percent by 2014. “We have failed to meet this target. In fact, the prevalence rate has increased to 18.4 percent in 2011,” she said. “The biggest increase was among women between the ages of 30 and 39 years.”

HIV, Development and HOPE – thoughts of a Catholic priest

Being a Roman - Catholic priest and working in the fields of HIV and social development in Africa has its challenges. You will find stories and reflections about my work, about the church, South Africa and Africa, about politics and whatever triggers my interest. You are most welcome to leave a comment or to get in touch with me. Blogging means to initiate thoughts and discussions and for the writer to formulate what is loosely running around in the heart and mind in need of being sorted and spoken out.
