Experience has taught us that the parish is a privileged place to fight AIDS. Apart from pastoral care for those who are sick, rejected or bereaved, structures have been put in place to offer close and concrete support to people affected by the pandemic. Some parishes run clinics while volunteer caregivers offer home-based care (HBC) in the community. Educational and psychosocial support for orphans is provided too. Members of Small Christian Communities (SCCs) are usually at the heart of these initiatives.
