HIV and Faith:  Strengthening the Engagement of Faith to End the Epidemic

This series, developed by the US HIV and AIDS Faith Coalition (USHAFC), will explore the engagement of faith leaders and faith communities toward ending the HIV/AIDS epidemic. It will feature conversations addressing the intersections of race, class, gender, sex, sexuality, and religion in the HIV response and offer insights, best practices, strategies, and vision for ending the epidemic. The event will center the voices of people with lived experience, commentary of faith actors from multiple faith traditions and practices, and HIV practitioners who have been engaged in HIV/AIDS response.
