Pacanet - Christian response to AIDS across Africa

Interesting and important group that should be on the radar screen of all interested in church responses to HIV and AIDS care and prevention.


The Pan African Christian AIDS Network is the response both to a call for greater coordination amongst grassroots Christian HIV/AIDS programs, as well as to a call for the bridging of resources (technical, information, financial) with disenfranchised groups at the grassroots level who are laboring to serve their communities. Finally it is the response to the need for a lifting/amplification of oft-unheard grassroots voices, to those who need to hear the views/input, particularly in policy-making arenas.  The PACANet constituency consists of hundreds of grassroots Christian HIV/AIDS programs throughout sub Saharan Africa.
