The HIV epidemic continues to present a challenge for today’s world. The engagement and action of faith communities, in coordination with other actors, are crucial if we want to realize the goal of ending AIDS as a public health threat by 2030. How can the faith communities have sound and relevant responses to the current challenges of HIV? In Faith Sector Implementation of the Global AIDS Strategy, the authors summarize three global strategies on HIV and provide examples of interventions and actions for faith communities.

Inequalities in access to life and health-giving love, grace, compassion, solidarity, and equity and justice continue to drive HIV stigma and AIDS itself. Given our reach and our infrastructure in health, education, and communication, faith communities and congregations are uniquely positioned to address these inequalities faster and more sustainably. This booklet will do much to enhance our “End Inequalities,  End AIDS” consciousness, competence, and resilience.

Rev. Prof Canon Gideon B Byamugisha, patron, INERELA +

We highly value and appreciate recent WCC publications related to the HIV response for three reasons: First, they address crucial challenges related to the inequalities driving the epidemic. Second, they confirm that only a multistakeholder approach involving all partners can bring sustainable results. Third, they demonstrate commitment by one of the biggest global FBOs to the implementation of the Global AIDS strategy, especially in this critical moment when objectives adopted by the international community are in danger.
