Religious leaders from several traditions collect red ribbons, a sign of hope amid the HIV crisis, which they will then place on a symbolic bridge during a July 23 interfaith prayer and memorial service in the Keizersgrachtkerk in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Sponsored by the World Council of Churches-Ecumenical Advocacy Alliance, the service was held on the first day of the 2018 International AIDS Conference.


The HIV epidemic continues to be an important part of the diaconal response of the faith communities. The WCC has a history of 38 years of work in Africa and globally. Given the latest scientific developments and the Global AIDS Strategy, which recommends working in the inequalities that drive the epidemic, WCC is updating its HIV work using the best strategies and lessons learned, and the potential areas of focused work as the new Health and Healing Commission is being constituted.

The webinar will be held on 1 December 16 CET.
