Churches and the HIV/AIDS Pandemic

« Go back

This paper, produced by the World Council of Churches and World Alliance of YMCAs, is an analysis of the situation in ten West/Central African countries. It seeks to answer the questions "How do the churches tackle the problem of faith and AIDS?" and "What resources do they use to embark on a bold action and take informed decisions?". It includes topics such as "Theological and Ethical Approaches of the Churches to HIV/AIDS", "Strategies and Activities Developed by the Churches in the AIDS Struggle", "The Existence of Networks" and "Specialised Institutions and NGO Resources". The paper stresses that the development of national and regional networks ought to be undertaken by Churches in the fight against the HIV/AIDS pandemic.
