The Body of Christ still has HIV. It's time to talk

Jim McManus

Catholics for AIDS Prevention and Support is the only national Christian charity that responds pastorally to the situation of people living with HIV in the UK. Professor Jim McManus is Director of Public Health for Hertfordshire, and Vice Chair of the Health and Social Care Advisory Group of the Catholic Bishops' Conference in England and Wales. World AIDS Day is on 1 December.

HIVThe Catholic Archbishop of Southwark, Peter Smith, and his Anglican Counterpart Bishop Christopher Chessun welcomed people living with HIV, other Christians, theologians and public health sector professionals to Romero House in London on 11 October 2017 for the public launch of a new video series and website from Catholics for AIDS Prevention and Support (CAPS), Positive Faith.

This is a unique project, the product of many years' pastoral experience. Positive Faith was devised and produced by Christian people living with and affected by HIV. In a series of videos, people directly affected, along with pastors and theologians, discuss HIV and how it interacts with their faith. What's more, this resource has been funded by an agency of Government - Public Health England (PHE) - as part of their HIV Prevention Innovation Fund1. It is the first online resource of its kind anywhere in the world.
