Register Now for the Interfaith Pre-Conference to AIDS 2014

16 Apr

“Stepping Up in Faith: The Interfaith Pre-Conference on HIV” will take place from 18-19 July at the Catholic Leadership Centre in Melbourne, Australia. The multi-faith committees convened by the EAA are currently working hard to ensure a vibrant, pertinent and engaging pre-conference.

Friday afternoon’s opening session will reflect on our journey with HIV thus far. This will be followed by special ‘listening sessions,’ where participants will have an opportunity to hear from people living with HIV and key affected populations. Saturday’s full-day program will include a joint plenary session with the Catholic pre-conference, workshop sessions and a closing plenary on equipping ourselves for the journey to come.

The program also includes ample time for informal networking. Keep an eye on this website for more information regarding faith-based participation in the coming weeks. Information regarding how to submit a workshop proposal will be available in mid- to late April.

  1. My Theory of the people living with HIV./AIDS

    I’m a catholic nun and from South- Korea. I’v been working for the people living with HIV/AIDS for 10 year: 7 years in Korea and three years in Papua New Guinea as a missionary.
    Now I came back to my country and I’m preparing for the people living with HIV/AIDS in Vietnam next.
    I came to know as I worked for the people living with HIV/AIDS. Many of whom among them are being injured with another their identity such as MSM, Trans gender, Sex workers, injection drug users, immigrant workers, etc. Which are also discriminated and stigmatized by the society of the world. However we, each one of us, every single person is very, very precious by God and by my parents as we are with full human dignity and authority.

    Sometimes we who are belong to all kind of religions, more strict or narrow mind to understand and accept this kind of people. We should seriously reflect ourselves discuss with open mind not by only theory but also practical activities. This is some of my thoughts.
