Brazil: Faith leaders and HIV


For many people living with HIV, fear, rejection and stigma are still the norm
Faith leaders have a key role to play in rejecting stigma and in championing HIV prevention and care. 
Because they hold positions of trust and authority, every religious leader has the potential to influence dozens, hundreds or even thousands of others.  
In Brazil, our partner Koinonia trains up religious leaders in HIV awareness, so that they can champion HIV awareness among their communities. 
'Religious institutions can either reinforce prejudice and discrimination, or they can fight against it.'-Anivaldo Pandilha, Koinonia
