In an attempt to break the conspiracy of the silence
surrounding the AIDS pandemic, CBN produced this program
to promote open dialogue.
Prior to the program airing across Africa, very little
public or governmental acknowledgement was given to
the reality or devastating power of illness. As a
result, many suffered in silence, scared to seek treatment
Breaking the Silence is a program that seeks to -
(a)Acknowledge the reality of AIDS in Africa
(b) Encourage the church and para-church organizations
to become compassionate care givers to those affected
(c) Bring hope to those infected who may either be
dying or are weighted down by shame and guilt.
This program features powerful true-life stories,
interviews and ministry with guest co-host TD Jakes.
