Bishop's Appeal Received: United Methodist Global AIDS Fund

Bishop Sally Dyck has designated the United Methodist Global AIDS Fund as this year's Bishop's Appeal recipient at Annual Conference.  Each church's offering will be received at the conference meeting on Sunday, June 4th. The World Health Organization (WHO) reports that 36.7 million people are infected with HIV. Nearly half of those who are infected are women. The UMGAF assists 287 projects in 44 countries. The goals of the UMGAF are: the prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV; the prevention of HIV in young people and high-risk populations; increased access to HIV counseling, testing, and treatment services; stigma reduction and psychosocial support to people living with HIV.
