Religious communities participate in World AIDS Day to educate about virus

Religious groups like the Ecumenical Advocacy alliance are one of the many agencies on the front line fighting this disease. They have stated an online petition called “Together We Must Do More” in which participants commit their time and energy to helping those suffering from AIDS. It?s estimated that over 33 million people are living with HIV across the world, most of whom are concentrated in Sub-Saharan Africa. This number has risen dramatically over the years but many say this is thanks to advancement in medicine that allows those infected to live much longer.However, between 1981 and 2007, more than 25 million people died from the virus, making it one of the most destructive pandemics in history. ; ;AERRHC-BN
