AIDS, Condoms and the Catholic Church

The notes for the lecture I gave this evening at Balham can be downloaded from my parish website's Controversies pages. It looks at the politicisation of HIV/AIDS, examples from the Philipppines and Thailand, Uganda and some other African countries. The example of the rise in STIs in the UK is used to show the effect of condom promotion. The CAFOD policy is critically examined. The lecture finishes by examining the Church's moral teaching and her practical response to help sufferers from HIV/AIDS.
