"We see hope in the many religious and educational institutions that are doing effective work on the frontline of the AIDS crisis. Catholic Medical Mission Board, for example, runs 15 clinics in southern Africa and Haiti where more than 200,000 pregnant women each year receive HIV testing and counseling and drug therapy to prevent the transmission of the virus to their children."
