Church Asked to Help Zambia Fight AIDS

LIVINGSTONE, Zambia, JUNE 9, 2009 (Zenit.org).-The European Union has invited the government of Zambia to work with the Catholic Church in fighting HIV/AIDS in the country, reports the news agency Fides.

Visiting European Union delegation leader, Susan Tomas, told Zambian authorities in May to work with the Church in the dissemination of information regarding sexual and reproductive health, as the Church has an important role to play.

After a tour of reproductive health projects supported by the European Union, she also asked the Church to intervene and help those projects in educating the public on sexual and reproductive health.

This takes place as the Church in Africa is responsible for the greater part of the distribution of medicine and antiretroviral treatments. In some countries, the Church is responsible for up to 50% of services to those suffering from HIV/AIDs.
