Church's HIV/Aids stance criticised

Two leading Catholic theologians have criticised the church’s teaching and practice on addressing HIV/Aids.

They have also questioned the profits that drug companies make from treating Aids-related diseases.

Fr Enda McDonagh, former professor of moral theology at St Patrick’s College, Maynooth, and Fr James Keenan SJ, a founder professor of theology at Boston College in the US, claimed that, every 37 days, as many people die from Aids-related illnesses as were killed in the 2004 Asian tsunami.
