Pastoral Brief and Activity Manual


The African-American community is on the front lines of the fight against HIV. Leaders, like you, hold the key to reach thousands of community members with life-saving information and resources. We need your voice in the fight against HIV. These resources will equip you to do just that.


The Pastoral Brief is an introduction to The Black Church & HIV, along with first-hand stories of how faith leaders can preach about HIV as a social justice issue and impact the lives of those living with HIV.


The Activity Manual is designed to provide faith leaders with more detailed information about HIV, as well as specific recommendations on activities that combat HIV and AIDS in the African-American community.

The Pastoral Brief, accompanied with the Activity Manual, will provide you with the tools you need to effectively engage your flock and successfully fight and defeat HIV as a social justice issue impacting the African-American community. We need your voice in the fight against HIV.
