  • About The Black Church & HIV: The Social Justice Imperative

    In the U.S., the Black community bears the greatest burden of the HIV epidemic, more than any other racial or ethnic group. While African Americans represented just 13% of the total population in 2017, they accounted for 42% of all people living with HIV and 44% of all new diagnoses. To address the urgent need for action, The Black Church & HIV initiative was established to form a national network of faith leaders, religious institutions, and community members committed to making change and ending the HIV epidemic in Black America.  The initiative successfully completed its Clinton Global Initiative Commitment to Action in fall of 2018.

    About The Black Church & HIV: The Faith Community’s Role

    Faith leaders are the key to building a movement around HIV as a social justice issue, whether they be church leaders, seminary students and faculty, or denominational leaders. As trusted conveners and educators of the community, faith leaders serve as the voice of the initiative. The initiative calls on faith leaders to serve not only as spokespersons, but as change agents to translate awareness into action, and help eliminate the HIV epidemic.
