Happy AIDS News from Africa

That headline may be unexpected. 

New AIDS cases are down 25% in a decade in sub-Saharan Africa.

The better news:  the main actors seem to be local leaders, not outsiders, especially religious leaders of many different communions.

W deserves some of the credit, don't you think?

President Bush and the many non-profits and government agencies that worked on fighting AIDS in Africa do deserve credit. The point of the article was that African leaders on the ground - at the congregational level - were the single most important actors in making the fight actually stick. Plenty of credit all around.
