Robert J. Vitillo Objectives of the Pre-Conference:  Objectives of the Pre-Conference General – Promote ecumenical and faith-based presence together in global community in fighting against HIV and AIDS Specific – Enhancing awareness and consciousness among faith-based communities Exchanging experiences and critical ethical and social analysis on HIV and AIDS Strengthening cooperation and collaboration and networking among religious communities Promoting inter-sectoral cooperation to combat HIV and AIDS Promoting the Fullness of Life …Setting the Framework for our Actions:  Promoting the Fullness of Life … Setting the Framework for our Actions We have to return to our roots as people of faith to enhance and fulfill life as God created it We perceive the love of God in our own lives as we build solidarity with those who are shunned by society In the book of Job, God complained that the people were telling 'lies about God' when they negatively judged and excluded others People who put their faith in Christ must live as He did – for this reason, we must work, together with Him, to 'renew the face of the earth' Promoting the Fullness of Life …What Actions Should We Take in this time of HIV and AIDS?:  Promoting the Fullness of Life … What Actions Should We Take in this time of HIV and AIDS? We must analyze and struggle to understand the situation in which we live the present moment This requires sensitivity to the HIV and AIDS scenario and will lead us to be caring We do not have to know why some situations occur – only how we can be of help As we reach out, we become aware of our mutual vulnerability; our solidarity makes us see that the 'Church is living with AIDS' Be Compassionate – this means 'suffering together' – God does not just care about us; God cares for us – so much so that God sent us the Son 'We don’t have to ask for whom the bell tolls … it tolls for you…' Promoting the Fullness of Life … How Do we Shape our Actions?:  Promoting the Fullness of Life … How Do we Shape our Actions? attend to total well-being: physical, psychological, social and spiritual well-being reform ourselves so that we could act out of knowledge consider or own lifestyles – do they reflect compassion? NOTE: as the fullness of life becomes a priority – our insistence on rituals and cultural taboos become less important We have what it takes, because we have Christ Access for All: Communities of Faith Making It Possible:  Access for All: Communities of Faith Making It Possible Access to care and treatment is still not a realistic hope in many countries of the world; Yet we have made progress: medications are cheaper and more acessible WHO has launched its 3 x 5 initiative Global Fund created and operational Global Fund has committed $3billion to 300 projects in 128 countries of the world Global fund has Faith-based Organizations as 'preferential partners' Slide7:  World Health Organization '3 by 5' Initiative http://www.who.int/3by5 Treat 3 million by 2005 Slide8:  40,000,000 are infected with HIV and AIDS worldwide 6,000,000 need treatment every year 3,000,000 die because they do not get it 400,000 people living with AIDS have access to treatment today Antiretroviral Therapy (ART) keeps people with HIV and AIDS alive and healthy The Goal: Provide access to treatment for all The Target: Treat 3 million HIV sufferers by 2005 What is the '3 by 5' Target? World Health Organization '3 by 5' Initiative http://www.who.int/3by5 Slide9:  What is '3 by 5' Building On? Increased global political commitment and resources Simplified treatment and testing Cheaper drugs and generic competition Build on lessons from developing and developed countries Use ART to strengthen health systems and accelerate prevention Opportunities Partners Experience World Health Organization '3 by 5' Initiative http://www.who.int/3by5 Slide10:  What is '3 by 5' Building On? Opportunities Partners UN and international agencies, governments, donors, non-governmental organizations including faith based organizations, researchers, people living with HIV and AIDS, private sector, charitable foundations, and communities Experience World Health Organization '3 by 5' Initiative http://www.who.int/3by5 Slide11:  What is '3 by 5' Building On? Opportunities Experience Partners Lessons learned by WHO in dealing with SARS, Polio, TB will be applied in addressing the world's worst health crisis: HIV and AIDS Lessons learned from partners, e.g. MSF in Khayelitsha, Partners in Health in Haiti, MTCT in Burkina Faso and treatment programs in the private sector World Health Organization '3 by 5' Initiative http://www.who.int/3by5 “3 x 5” involves an “act of faith” by all its partners!:  '3 x 5' involves an 'act of faith' by all its partners! An 'act of faith' that our actions will save lives … An 'act of faith' that we will overcome discrimination and stigma … An 'act of faith' that we will bring about change for the good … An 'act of faith' that we have the power to change history … Where FBOs Make A Difference:  Where FBOs Make A Difference We can motivate people to combat stigma and discrimination (but also must attend to it within our own communities) Moral and ethical voice of religious leaders Care and support through hospitals, clinics, hospices, home care, schools, orphanages Pastoral care Education and awareness to promote prevention Exercising our citizenship to call on governments for resources and just policies Churches’ Health Association of Zambia: A Positive Model of Collaboration with a Country Coordinating Mechanism (CCM) :  Churches’ Health Association of Zambia: A Positive Model of Collaboration with a Country Coordinating Mechanism (CCM) churches in Zambia provide 50% of rural health care and 30% of total health care in Zambia 4 Principal Recipients of Global Fund monies in Zambia (– all four have direct contracts with the Global Fund): Ministry of Finance, National Board of Health, CHAZ, Zambia HIV and AIDS Network Churches’ Health Association of Zambia: A Positive Model of Collaboration with a Country Coordinating Mechanism (CCM) :  Churches’ Health Association of Zambia: A Positive Model of Collaboration with a Country Coordinating Mechanism (CCM) What is the 'secret' of CHAZ’ success in bringing together Protestant and Catholic church health networks???? united voice community strength recognised strong central coordinating body formalised partnership with the government political support Challenges coordination with other donors capacity of sub-recipients FBOs’ high expectations for access to additional funds NOTE: The positive experience of CHAZ was not shared in their own respective settings by many of the other participants – many problems with CCMs! Access for All: Communities of Faith … Making It Possible:  Access for All: Communities of Faith … Making It Possible BUT access means more than ARV treatment It means feeling God’s grace in one’s life It means receiving acceptance for who we are – children of God and members of local communities It makes possible the enjoyment of feelings of joy, hope, peace, forgiveness, AND eternal life 'Is not this fast that I have chosen? To loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free …?' (Is. 58:6) “Faith, Knowledge, and Care: Promoting Access for All”:  'Faith, Knowledge, and Care: Promoting Access for All' FAITH … Poverty is perhaps the principal obstacle to care and treatment Faith entails our efforts to see others as God sees them God sees PLWHIV and AIDS as beloved sons and daughters; thus we need to see them as beloved sisters and brothers Refusal to do so entails bad faith … not just poor social policy God cannot express preferential love unless us we do so for and with God “Faith, Knowledge, and Care: Promoting Access for All”:  'Faith, Knowledge, and Care: Promoting Access for All' KNOWLEDGE… From faith, we pass to knowledge … Many people are dying because of lack of knowledge … About prevention, Opportunistic Infections, Care, etc. CARE … Caritas Internationalis and African Jesuit AIDS Network are sponsoring a new Care and Treatment Manual: Rays of Hope: Managing HIV and AIDS in Africa' which is geared to the needs of FBOs at the local community level “Faith, Knowledge, and Care: Promoting Access for All”:  'Faith, Knowledge, and Care: Promoting Access for All' PERSONAL and STRUCTURAL elements of Compassion: Jesus showed us that TOUCH is essential to healing e.g., with the leper to touch is the most important antidote to HIV, the greatest aid to access this takes personal commitment but also structural change – the churches denounce structures of injustice and promote solutions – e.g., Pope John Paul II’s teaching about 'social mortgage' on all private property and challenge against 'profit' as sole criterion for development Sharing Critical Successes and Surprising Challenges from Different Continents:  Sharing Critical Successes and Surprising Challenges from Different Continents Africa – Anglican Church: Southern African Province - Representatives of 12 Anglican provinces from 33 countries met to do planning Workshops held diocese by diocese in order to develop respective plans April 2003: programme launched – 'Building the Foundation' Church leadership needs to be prepared and engaged – cannot presume that presence in an area equates capacity to do HIV and AIDS ministry in the area Often the church itself is a source of discrimination and stimatisation Sharing Critical Successes and Surprising Challenges from Different Continents:  Sharing Critical Successes and Surprising Challenges from Different Continents Africa – Anglican Church: Southern African Province 6 areas identified for programme: Prevention Pastoral care Christian counselling Care – esp. home-based care Impact of death and process of dying Leadership Critical Success: Programme has been launched Sharing Critical Successes and Surprising Challenges from Different Continents:  Sharing Critical Successes and Surprising Challenges from Different Continents Africa – Anglican Church: Southern African Province Challenges: Problems in relationship between funder and recipient; HIV and AIDS reaches deeply into Church’s understanding of itself – challenge way in which we are Church We come with our faith that the Church has the capacity to respond to AIDS – but the structures of the church, especially when autonomous, do not always put forth a consistent response Sharing Critical Successes and Surprising Challenges from Different Continents:  Sharing Critical Successes and Surprising Challenges from Different Continents South Asia Ecumenical Partnership Program Successes All churches in South Asia came together - Recognized the seriousness of the situation Broken people are being more acknowledged as the broken body of Christ Openness to talk about sexuality – developed a programme of behaviour change pattern Sharing Critical Successes and Surprising Challenges from Different Continents:  Sharing Critical Successes and Surprising Challenges from Different Continents South Asia Ecumenical Partnership Program Challenges: Stigma and Discrimination becoming a constant challenge to the church – need to keep the church as a house of love and epitome of inclusiveness various sectors of health system has failed to map the illness pattern with its impact on the poor; need to decide who 'guides' the agenda; statistics are contradictory; concepts of morality, sin, guilt and cultural ethos; disjointed efforts Sharing Critical Successes and Surprising Challenges from Different Continents:  Sharing Critical Successes and Surprising Challenges from Different Continents Ecumenical Humanitarian Organization – EHO – Experience in Serbia church-based organization founded in 1993 area includes refugees and internally displaced persons although no direct experience with war in this particular area Challenges: Communist inheritance - church not allowed to do offer social activities for 50 years Few NGOs present Constant political instability Issue of HIV and AIDS not mentioned, even in medical practice – lack of knowledge in general population Sharing Critical Successes and Surprising Challenges from Different Continents:  Sharing Critical Successes and Surprising Challenges from Different Continents Ecumenical Humanitarian Organization – EHO – Experience in Serbia Red Line is the only service of its type in the country and provides: Information phone line Contact center Counselling service Home visits and escort service Material assistance Education and public information service Sharing Critical Successes and Surprising Challenges from Different Continents:  Sharing Critical Successes and Surprising Challenges from Different Continents Ecumenical Humanitarian Organization – EHO – Experience in Serbia Red Line’s critical successes: Initializing new (free) service Involving the local community Involving the churches Raising awareness Educating volunteers – well-prepared Involving PLHA from the very beginning of the programme Sharing Critical Successes and Surprising Challenges from Different Continents:  Sharing Critical Successes and Surprising Challenges from Different Continents Ecumenical Humanitarian Organization – EHO – Experience in Serbia Knowledge Against AIDS - KAA First educational project ever done in Serbia Introduced in the schools Aim: to change the policy – to be able to integrate these workshops in school curricula Involving well qualified personnel who have most up-to-date information 73,000 pupils have been reached – high level of acquired knowledge demonstrated Sharing Critical Successes and Surprising Challenges from Different Continents:  Sharing Critical Successes and Surprising Challenges from Different Continents Ecumenical Humanitarian Organization – EHO – Experience in Serbia Challenges encountered: Local NGO Church-related – still must discrimination toward the church Founded by minority churches – thus not well accepted by the majority church High dependence on voluntary donations from foreign donors Global Fund CCM not willing to cooperate with NGOs, especially with FBOs Sharing Critical Successes and Surprising Challenges from Different Continents:  Sharing Critical Successes and Surprising Challenges from Different Continents Rev. Canon Gideon Byamigisha We have come from a long way – combined strengths becoming more enduring than our collective weaknesses In Uganda, we were pioneers of building inclusive communities, youth programmes ('Youth go to power'), 'positive clubs and parenting programmes, integration of HIV and AIDS in the liturgy, recognition that our church is HIV-positive, programmes to support religious leaders who are HIV-positive or -affected Sharing Critical Successes and Surprising Challenges from Different Continents:  Sharing Critical Successes and Surprising Challenges from Different Continents Rev. Canon Gideon Byamigisha Challenges: We still are 'stuck' – not able to distinguish what is lawful from what is 'safe' There is no Christian response to HIV and AIDS – there is response of Christians to HIV and AIDS Mix religion with public health We mix up issues of choice without seeing what is on the ground – must move beyond a single 'ABC' approach We need to distinguish between 'refusal' and 'failure' We need to adopt a combination prevention/care approach to HIV and AIDS We need to perfect our 6 Ps: Policy, Planning, Programmes, Personnel, Partnership, Prayer Important Reactions and Reflections:  Important Reactions and Reflections We affirmed the importance of increased and organised action and taking into consideration other socio-economic issues, e.g., gender inequality, poverty Capacity-building is VERY important It is important for us to dialogue with the infected and affected as EQUAL partners We do not need outside funding and programming to teach us how to love one another and how to overcome stigma and discrimination Have we accomplished the Objectives of the Pre-Conference???:  Have we accomplished the Objectives of the Pre-Conference??? General – We HAVE promoted ecumenical and faith-based presence together in global community in fighting against HIV and AIDS – through prayer, reflection, discussion, debate and shared experiences. Specific – We HAVE enhanced awareness and consciousness among faith-based communities We HAVE exchanged experiences and critical ethical and social analysis on HIV and AIDS We HAVE strengthened cooperation and collaboration and networking among religious communities We HAVE Promoted inter-sectoral cooperation to combat HIV and AIDS
