Course Area of Study:

This intensive course provides a foundation to understand and effectively address HIV/AIDS. A clear and unique science-based reframing of HIV/AIDS as “a fragile virus and a preventable infection” provides faith leaders a working knowledge of virus transmission, the disease process, how to live with HIV infection, and strategies for effective local efforts to help reverse the HIV/AIDS pandemic. Attendees participate in active learning for eye-opening insights on socioeconomic issues and practical steps to establish effective ministries for HIV/AIDS and other health disparities. They come away with a deeper understanding of the depth of issues and the call to action now.
