“AIDS, a silent war against AFRICA”
A report of the AACC Church Leaders’ consultation on the approach to the HIV/AIDS crises in West Africa, Dakar, Senegal; on the implication of church leaders in HIV/AIDS programs including awareness rising and mobilization workshops care for the infected and affected people. Seems to be an impossible area for many churches and organization leaders in Africa.
This sad fact may be attributed to many real challenges, but mainly to:
- Insufficient information and knowledge to help many churches and organizations leaders
- The perception by many churches and organizations, of people living with HIV/AIDS
- The reluctance of many churches and organizations leaders to see HIV/AIDS as any other terminal
- The scarcity of resources
While many churches and different organizations are struggling with these challenges and others not mentioned here. Thousands of Africans children, youth and adults are daily approaching their isolation and neglect the end of their silent battle against the disease. While their loved ones are watching hopelessly and quiet. As a result many lives had gone to waste, while a single word of awareness and care could easily save them.
