Lent 11: Health — AIDS

True Grit: Women Taking On the World, for God's Sake

Many men in Africa and Asia believe that sexual relations with a virgin can cure the virus that causes AIDS. This has led to a tragic increase of infection among young girls. For every HIV-positive male there are six infected females.

Wondering what this is all about? Read my post explaining why and how I’m commemorating Lent this year.

  1. These statistics are so sad. I have read much about AIDS and meeting with Connie weekly and hearing more about this just blows me away. Is education about AIDS the answer in these countries?

What do you think? I'd love to know.
