Ending AIDS: Faith Actors and Two Possible Futures
December 1, 2019
HIV and AIDS present urgent choices to today’s policymakers and community leaders: Could resources and political will drive action in the coming decade to bring the disease under control, or will flagging commitment and focus result in its resurgence?
This brief highlights discussions on September 5, 2019 at the Berkley Center on “Two Possible Futures: Faith Action to End AIDS,” and it draws on the experience and insights of leaders, past and present, on HIV/AIDS. It responded to the challenge that participant David Barstow presented in his 2019 book, HIV and AIDS in 2030: A Choice Between Two Futures, that outlines two possible futures: one positive, the other less so. The goal is for the discussion to be the foundation for further strategic reflections towards a positive path ahead.
