Philadelphia Clergy’s HIV Prevention Campaign


Hour 1

Philadelphia’s black clergy are urging their congregants to get tested for HIV.  Over 100 churches and mosques are participating in an HIV prevention campaign.  Some are even offering HIV testing on site.  Philadelphia has one of the highest rates of HIV in the country.  African Americans make up 64% of all new infections in the city.  This hour, Marty talks with some of the campaign organizers:  PASTOR ALYN WALLER of Enon Tabernacle Baptist Church, RAFIYQ FRIEND with Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, and AMY NUNN, an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Brown University Medical School.
