Abp. Welby: End AIDS by 2030

Adapted from the Archbishop of Canterbury’s website

The Archbishop of Canterbury has given his strong support to the work of community-based responses to the global AIDS epidemic.

In a video message released in advance of this year’s High-Level Meeting on Ending AIDS (June 8-10), Archbishop Justin Welby calls for a “great further step” in ending AIDS by 2030 by empowering “political, financial, technical, and clinical resources through communities.”

He praises the role of communities, and particularly faith-based communities, in providing treatment for the poor and marginalized. He highlights the role the Anglican Communion has played for many years in offering community-based treatment, enabling communities to “support the victims of AIDS, their families and others affected directly and indirectly.”
