The AIDS epidemic – Why blame the Church?

Being a member of PHILCHAN (Philippine Catholic HIV AIDS Network), I am always on the look out for any publications on the topic dealing with HIV-AIDS.  This group was started over a year ago with Bishop Broderick Pabillo as chairman because this advocacy is part of some NASSA projects.  I was quite peeved then when […]
