Enoch Milien, a funeral director and associate pastor at a Miami church, has started the first group effort by minority clergy in South Florida to attack AIDS, called the Conference of Haitian Pastors United in Christ. The group of more than 70 pastors plans to offer AIDS education in their churches and neighborhoods, with courses in HIV prevention care to be offered along with standard Sunday school education. There are an estimated 300,000 Haitian Americans in South Florida. AIDS is striking more minorities in South Florida, with Haitians accounting for 2,389 AIDS cases since 1981.
