An “african” event at Sant’Egidio for the G8: the first ladies meet operators and witnesses of the DREAM programme for fighting against AIDS in Africa

printable version

The Community of Sant’Egidio hosted an “african” event in the programme of the first ladies participating in the G8 meeting, on the issue: “Women protagonists of the fight against AIDS in Africa”.

In the Centre of Sant’Egidio in Trastevere, the first ladies of the United Kingdom, Sarah Brown, of Messico, Margarita Zavala de Calderon and of the European Union, Margarita Barroso, have met a delegation of african women and of operators of the DREAM Programme, promoted by Sant’Egidio for treatment of AIDS in 10 african countries.
In Africa the programme has over 75,000 patients in treatment, focusing above all on cure of pregnant women and of children, so that they can born healthy from seropositive mothers. In eight years of activity over 8,000 children were born healthy within the DREAM Programme.
The first ladies expressed their appreciation for the outcome of the programme and highlighted that Africa needs more solidarity from the wealthier countries. ”Africa can rise again with the support of everybody”, they declared.
Sant’Egidio, through the voice of the africanwomen addressed an appeal to G8 not to forget Africa and larger resources be dedicated to fight against AIDS that now affects 25 million africans. Europe and the Western countries – stated prof. Marco Impagliazzo, President of Sant’Egidio - can find again a mission in supporting Africa.
