HIV services at risk

Shifts in funding are reducing the ability for faith-based organizations to provide treatment and other HIV-related services, according to a study presented during the International AIDS Conference in Vienna, Austria.

"There is growing concern that momentum behind the push to fund universal access to HIV treatment is being lost," said the study, which was commissioned by the Ecumenical Advocacy Alliance, a group of more than 50 churches and Christian organizations including the ELCA.

Funding reductions are affecting many HIV-related services, including care for children, counseling and testing.
