Address by Michel Sidibé, UNAIDS Executive Director to the Pontifical Council for Health Care Workers and Good Samaritan Foundation in Rome, 28 May 2011
Funding sustainable health care is a moral obligation, a right not a luxury. In this, the faith community and the Church are among our strongest allies in calling for robust, comprehensive and lasting national responses to HIV. To do this, the faith communities and the AIDS movement must come together and speak with one voice. The world is not hearing us because we are talking over, and sometimes in opposition to, each other.
