Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

Group of experts discuss at the Vatican how to make HIV treatment accessible

2014-02-27

UN experts and Catholic organizations met in Rome last week to discuss HIV treatment. The main topic of discussion was how to avoid pregnant women transmiting the virus to their children.

"We do need to put at the center the experience and the values of the Catholic organizations that are delivering drugs and dignity to people with AIDS who are the most vulnerable to this epidemic.”

CARD. JOHN ONAIYEKAN
Archbishop of Abuja (Nigeria)
"And we are now talking even of treatment, such that people who are infected with the virus can still live their lives, more or less normally, just like other chronic conditions.”

The UN is working to reduce the transmition of AIDS from mother to child by 90 percent.

And since the Catholic Church assits thousands of people suffering from AIDS in Africa,  collaboration is essential.

CARD. JOHN ONAIYEKAN
Archbishop of Abuja (Nigeria)
"At the end of the day, the resources of the nation are under the control of the Goverment. And so the whole issue on how to reach the people living with HIV and AIDS  is closely linked with how much Goverments are doing to take care of the health of their citizens.”

LUIZ LOURES
Executive Director, UNAIDS
"We are now reaching a crossroad in the response to AIDS that are two options. One via takes us to the end of AIDS, but at the same time we have a fundamental challenge today, that some groups, some populations are being left behind.”

More than 300.000 children were infected with AIDS in 2011, and 600 died everyday. These figures are even more tragic when it is known that their death could have been prevented with medical help.
