Seeing is Believing: Questions about Faith-Based Organizations That Are Involved in HIV/AIDS Prevention and Treatment

2010, 21 pp.
Faith-based organizations have long been on the front lines of healthcare provision, and they receive enormous amounts of public money to do so. Unfortunately, many of these providers do not provide a full range of preventative care, especially advice on the use of and access to condoms to prevent the spread of HIV. This report raises some important questions and provides some proposals for how we might move forward towards more transparency and, as a result, more comprehensive prevention efforts—especially for higher risk populations.

Catholic Attitudes on Condoms in the Prevention of HIV and AIDS

2007

As public health campaigns focus on condom use as a key to preventing HIV/ AIDS transmission, the Vatican maintains steadfast opposition to the use of condoms for any reason. In anticipation of World AIDS Day, Catholics for Choice asked Belden Russonello & Stewart to conduct an international poll of Catholics to determine their attitudes toward condoms and AIDS. BRS surveyed Catholics over 18 in Ghana, Ireland, Mexico, the Philippines, and the United States; the results of the poll are reported here.
