On May 28-30, 2012, the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) organized a regional consultative forum in Limuru, Kenya, PEPFAR and Faith-Based Organizations: Partners in Sustaining Community and Country Leadership in Global HIV/AIDS.
In collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and St. Paul’s University in Limuru, Kenya, IHP convened over 100 representatives from Christian and Muslim faith-based organizations working in Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, and Uganda.
Participants discussed opportunities for faith-based organizations to enhance their role in sustaining community and country-led responses to HIV/AIDS. Over the course of three days, participants shared best practices, lessons learned, and narratives about innovative and effective responses to addressing the needs of individuals and communities affected by HIV/AIDS.
The Consultation report was launched at the Interfaith Pre-Conference of the International AIDS Conference on July 20, 2012 at Howard University in conjunction with the Ecumenical Advocacy Alliance.
