Nicholas Kristof doggedly reminds us in today's New York Times op ed that much still needs to be done to solve the AIDS epidemic in Africa. Citing both the successes and failures of the current Bush policy, Kristof warns:
"Unless we get moving, over the next 14 years some 45 million additional lives may be claimed by AIDS — far more than by either Stalin or Hitler. The fates of those human beings are in our hands."If you are looking for a way to help, Kristof recommends making a contribution to CARE, Africare, the Cabrini Mission Foundation and Population Services International--all groups that in his estimation are doing great work in Africa.
