Enhancing the transformational capacity of religious leaders in HIV-related interventions is central to the work of INERELA+. Religious leaders have the potential to be agents of change in their interpersonal relationships, their congregations, and their communities. Drawing on their religious and personal resources, they can teach and demonstrate resilience, inclusiveness, non-judgmental compassion, and positive living for people living with or affected by HIV & Aids. A first step in INERELA+’s capacity-building work with religious leaders is to share information and skills to facilitate open discussion and equip them to promote HTS in their congregations.
