Responding to the challenge of HIV at home and abroad

HIV continues to be both a cause and consequence not just of ill-health and death, but also of poverty and lack of development around the world. With five people infected with HIV and three dying of AIDS every minute of every day, the need is obvious.

People living with HIV throughout the world do not look for our sympathy but our solidarity and practical support. The HIV Programme aims to provide that support around the world through its partnership's with church-related and other faith-based organisations and so to bring hope.

The HIV Programme's aims are to...

  • Break the silence on HIV and AIDS
  • Stand together with partner churches
  • Offer practical support
  • Speak up for the voiceless
  • Involve every member of the church

The Church of Scotland's HIV Programme is currently supporting 27 projects in 15 countries of the world, check it out for more information.

Funding applications will be considered by relevant Area Secretaries, and will be submitted to the World Mission Council once a year in April.  Contact HIV@churchofscotland.org.uk for more information.
