Notes
"In the Nigerian city of Lagos, home to almost eight million souls, WACC [World Association for Christian Communication] works with Hope for HIV/AIDS International (HFA) to promote acceptance of people with HIV/AIDS. 'Mainstream society tends to ostracize whole families because of HIV/AIDS in violation of their rights', says Dr. Sarah Macharia, WACC's Kenya-born program manager for HIV/AIDS communication and stigma. So WACC is helping HFA sponsor a communication training program for Christian and Muslim clergy to combat the stigma. Upon completing the joint training program, Christian pastors receive a wooden cross tied with a red ribbon. Muslim imams get a wooden crescent tied with a red ribbon". "After training, clergy return to their congregations and act as communicators to challenge the stigmatization of affected people and their kin. The clergy remain the principal purveyors of information in their regular ongoing interactions with congregants. But at the same time, there's a 'knock-on effect in the congregations, a snowball effect', Macharia says".
