May 8, 2006 — Twenty Canadian church leaders, representing the member churches of the Canadian Council of Churches, have appealed to Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper to promptly announce six new initiatives in the fight against HIV/AIDS.

The sweeping measures the church leaders want include cancellation of debts owed by countries with HIV/AIDS rates above 1.1 per cent of the population and amendments to Canadian legislation to facilitate the export of medicines.

The church leaders also ask for a meeting with the Prime Minister before he speaks to a UN group at the end of the month.

The full text of the letter is available in the Ecumenism in Canada archive. The letter is also available in French.
