Geldof backs Bush’s no-sex campaign in the battle against Aids

Telegraph UK 28 Sep 06
President George W Bush’s “no sex” campaign to stop the spread of Aids was hailed yesterday by Bob Geldof as a highly effective initiative. The Live Aid founder and anti-poverty campaigner said the controversial Pepar programme gave women “a weapon” for protecting their health.It has been criticised for diverting a third of the funds to faith based groups which preach abstinence. Opponents claim that this smacks of Christian fundamentalism and endangers lives by failing to place sufficient emphasis on condoms.
