Matthew Hanley is the author of the CTS booklet, The Catholic Church and the Global AIDS crisis. It was Hanley’s fuller-length book on the same subject that has won him this new accolade.
His winning title, Affirming Love, Avoiding AIDS: What Africa Can Teach The West, co-authored with Jokin de Irala, took the top award for its frank and clear look at which methods are successful and which are not in the prevention of AIDS. Here’s how the CPA described it:
“First Place – Affirming Love, Avoiding Aids: What Africa Can Teach The West, Matthew Hanley and Jokin de Irala, The National Catholic Bioethics Center, Philadelphia, Pa.
A well-documented case for what is happening and not happening in working with AIDS in Africa and what and how the West can learn from all this research. A well written, important topic at an important time in history.”
The same could be said of the shorter study which we have published – its combination of top research and real readability makes it an informative and vital read. The award also confirms that we have succeeded in our attempts to get the best and most knowledgeable authors writing for us about some of the most controversial subjects being discussed both inside and outside the Church today.
