CCODP sets limits on aid.

Ottawa -- The Canadian Catholic international aid agency, Development and Peace, issued a press release Dec. 18 stating that its HIV/AIDS policy forbids funding any programs that do not follow Catholic moral principles.

"Development and Peace," states the policy, "follows the teaching of the Catholic Church, and it will not fund programs specifically designed to distribute condoms, nor will CCODP fund elements of broader programs which involve condom distribution." The organization also affirms that it "will ensure that any project it funds on the subject of HIV/AIDS prevention will include information on the Church's teaching on marital fidelity and abstinence."
