Our Black Church Week of Prayer for the Healing of AIDS 2016 Host:
What is the Black Church Week of Prayer for the Healing of AIDS?
The Black Church Week of Prayer for the Healing of AIDS is an annual HIV awareness campaign that mobilizes faith communities; and highlights the contributions and impact congregations are making in areas of HIV prevention, testing, direct service, advocacy and community engagement.
Now in its 27th year, The Black Church Week of Prayer for the Healing of AIDS is the forerunner of all national HIV awareness campaigns in the US.
This national faith mobilization campaign continues to call men and women of faith to prayer and to take aggressive action in dismantling AIDS stigma; to model unconditional love and compassion to all persons living with and affected by HIV; to disseminate factual HIV education and to engage communities in HIV testing and treatment services.
"Focusing on the Highest Quality of Life for African Americans"
