Goal

World AIDS day is celebrated every year on 1 December. It is an opportunity for individuals and groups all over the world to come together to remember, and demonstrate worldwide support to people living with and people affected by HIV and AIDS. It is the one day in the year where issues surrounding HIV and AIDS can take centre stage. 

Resources have been compiled by the St. John’s Cathedral HIV Education Centre to be used in the context of Morning or Evening Prayer or the Eucharist Worship within parish groups or school assemblies. We hope that you will be able to use them as an aid to worship and an educational tool for your people.

Activity

We hope that churches will be able to use the materials as an aid to worship and an educational tool for their people. 

 

Outcomes

The Church becomes more involved with HIV/AIDS and contributes its efforts to achieve the global theme for World AIDS Campaign, “Getting to Zero.”

Backed by the United Nations, the “Getting to Zero” campaign focuses on the goals of zero new infections, zero discrimination and zero AIDS related deaths.
