Republican Congressman… Chris Smith provided indisputable evidence of the victory: AIDS prevention events in African countries achieve successful results when they are founded upon abstinence and fidelity. From the House of Representatives, Smith drew a bill to revive the President’s Emergency Plan for HIV/AIDS.
After citing the reports of the U.S. State Department and the Department of Health and Human Services – which prove the infallible measure of abstinence and fidelity in these programs – Smith pointed out that both measures have been an important factor to halt the spread of AIDS in Uganda, Kenya and Zimbabwe. These three provinces have shown declining HIV/AIDS spread rates. Reports indicate that this decline is due to the extension of abstinence and fidelity.
