On his first trip to Ethiopia not long ago, Prof. Dan Englehard was invited to visit an orphanage where 350 children were sick with AIDS.”It was heartbreaking,” he said. “At Hadassah Hospital, we haven’t lost a child in a decade and all of these children were dying.” Now that drugs are available through America’s Center for Disease Control (CDC) under the special Presidential appropriations, Prof. Engelhard was able to initiate a healing program for these orphans.
“You have to show that patients will take their medicine regularly. Otherwise you’re not doing any good,” explains Prof. Englehard. “In this orphanage, the nuns are very serious and cooperative and I know they’ll comply.”
How will they fine-tune the doses? Prof. Engelhard has volunteered to be their unpaid consultant, phoning every week from Israel to go over the cases.
