Challenge

The AIDS epidemic in Africa is characterised by stigma (judgement, fear, isolation), lack of knowledge and indifference (apathy and irresponsibility). The infection rate is still very high with two new infections for every person accessing treatment. There are however churches with structures in every outpost of the continent. This means that a wonderful potential exists for churches and Christians to be part of the solution to this crisis. CABSA helps unlock this potential.

Solution

CABSA makes information available, creates understanding, helps congregations become involved, trains leaders, is involved in initiatives and supports processes to assist faith communities to understand and live out their calling in a world with HIV.

Long-Term Impact

Christian churches provide a powerful channel for the implementation of HIV and Aids strategies. However, church leaders are often uninvolved because they lack a comprehensive view of the pandemic and its drivers. In order for this to change, and for churches to fulfill their potential as a powerful channel for the implementation of HIV and Aids strategies, churches and faith communities need: To be confronted with the realities of the pandemic and the multi-layered factors
