World AIDS Day
Last year I wrote an editorial in my local newspaper about World AIDS Day (December 1). This year I’m satisfied to read Bono’s powerful op-ed piece in The New York Times. It’s awesome. He mentions President’s Obama’s announcement: an increase in the number of HIV+ patients treated through the PEPFAR program United States President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief—the number one funder of the Faith Alive clinic in Jos, Nigeria). We pray that the President’s promise translates to increased and consistent funding to this program that’s already saved the lives of some of my closest friends.
