POSITIVE FAITH IN ACTION
Empower religious leaders through education, knowledge and skills to live positively, become symbols of hope and agents of change who will advance the elimination of stigma and discrimination and further promote gender justice and human rights within their congregations and communities.
INERELA+ is strategically positioned to contribute to an increase in HIV testing, levels of disclosure; reduced HIV-related stigma and discrimination; reduced AIDS-related deaths and reduced human rights or dignity abuses. This includes building and strengthening the capacity of religious leaders in issues related to Gender-Based violence(GBV), Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights(SRHR) and committing to remain as change agents who serve and support their congregants, communities and especially Key Populations or Inadequately Served Populations(ISP), in Africa and the rest of the world.
A society free of HIV related stigma and discrimination, with empowered, resilient religious leaders living with or personally affected by HIV and AIDS.
