About this Item

328 pages. Dimensions: 8.7in. x 5.9in. x 0.7in.Combating HIV in Zambian Churches. Silence, shame and stigma associated with HIV infection has caused exclusion and suffering to people greatly affected by the virus. This study proposes the creation of HIV support groups (Circles of Hope) as a strategy to combat HIV. The study is a brain child of these support groups which are being created in local congregations in Zambia. This study therefore is about a missiological praxis for the creation of Circles of Hope as an entry point for faith based organisations to build HIV competent communities. HIV requires a holistic approach which mobilises all the sectors within a nation. Stigma remains one of the most significant challenges in Zambia across the prevention-to-care continuum. Measures are required to develop strong theological reflections and education which would result in the establishment of Circles of Hope in all local congregations. These groups would act as a fountain for promoting behavioural change, support action for safer sexual behaviour, and combat stigmatisation and discrimination against people with known HIV infection. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9783639192407

This study therefore is about a missiological praxis for the creation of ?Circles of Hope? as an entry point for faith based organisations to build HIV competent communities. HIV requires a holistic approach which mobilises all the sectors within a nation. Stigma remains one of the most significant challenges in Zambia across the prevention-to-care continuum. Measures are required to develop strong theological reflections and education which would result in the establishment of Circles of Hope in all local congregations.
