Pope: 'Condoms increase problem of Aids'

The Pope has said that condoms do not help in the fight against Aids. In an analysis of the background in Wednesday's Times I explain why this is inhumane. As Jonathan Clayton and I report, on his flight to Africa, his first trip to the continent most devastated by the disease, he ruled out any relaxation of the Roman Catholic Church's anti-contraception stance, even where lives are at stake. This rather extraordinary cartoon by Peter Brookes appears in The Times of Wednesday 18 March.
