PTI Examines Network for Religious Leaders Affected by HIV/AIDS, Interfaith Summit

September 29, 2010

INERELA is "an international network of religious leaders" affected by HIV/AIDS founded by Anglican priest Reverend J.P. Heath, who said HIV-positive religious leaders "face double the stigma, double the discrimination" because of people associate HIV with "immoral sex," Press Trust of India reports. INERELA "works with various countries in Africa and also countries like India, [and] has advocated the SAVE programme which refers to treating HIV/AIDS in a holistic manner," PTI writes (9/28). In a separate article, PTI examines a "two-day interfaith summit on HIV" that that just concluded in Bangalore, India. As part of the summit, "religious leaders ... signed a declaration that chalked out a strategy to combat AIDS, which includes working in close partnership with organisations and networks of people living with HIV" (9/28).
