The study identifies a serious and growing gap in thecare of people living with HIV and AIDS in Zambia. Itinvestigates the empowerment of churches forhome-based care as a pastoral response to thepandemic. A contextual analysis of the HIV/AIDSpandemic is made. The need for HIV/AIDS education forboth the clergy and laity is noted as a critical steptoward empowerment of churches. The study notes thatan urgent need exists for evangelical Christians'involvement in the fight against the HIV/AIDS throughpastoral care. Most evangelicals seem to prefernon-involvement to practical engagement due tostigma. The shift of pastoral care from theprofessional counseling room to the faith communityis identified as vital to African pastoral care ofPLWHA where care and counseling is essentially acommunal matter. The study formulates a pastoralmodel with a healthy tension between pastoral careand psychosocial counseling without compromisingbiblical Christianity. The study posits atheological praxis toward empowering church-basedcommunities through HIV/AIDS training rediscoveringauthentic koinonia care, and reaching out to peopleliving with HIV/AIDS through home-based care.
There are close to 40 million people worldwide who are infected with HIV-AIDS virus, half of whom are found in sub-Saharan Africa. AIDS is one of the most serious challenges currently facing the education systems of developing countries. The national HIV prevalence in Kenya stands at 7.4 and Nyanza province has the highest prevalence of 15.3 with Homa Bay District having the highest HIV-AIDS prevalence in Nyanza province of 21.0%. The study employed survey and phenomenological design.Pupils and teachers affected and infected with HIV-AIDS display many problems that affected teaching and learning.Some of these problems are addressed through counseling and provision of material support. Many teachers and pupils did not appreciate counseling and most counseling teachers were not trained. Most head teachers did not have complete knowledge of Ministry of Education (MOE) policy guidelines on response to the effects of HIV-AIDS. It was recommended that more sensitization and awareness on HIV-AIDS should be done. Affected and infected should be provided with basic necessities, teacher counselors should be trained, MOE should avail policy guidelines to headteachers among other things.

The AIDS pandemic threatens to kill millions in the next ten years. No one should be silent about speaking to the issue or reading about the complexity of the problem. Dr. Ramesh Deosarran was courageous in his decision to present his readers with both the historical context of the epidemic, as well as the contemporary possibilities of approaches for the Christian community. Churches have the ability to influence the values and actions of not only the congregations, but also wider segments of the community. In this important work Ramesh acknowledges the need for a clearer 'roadmap' for developing effective HIV prevention ministries that are sensitive to the church's 'cultural' values and norms. A healthy embrace of the contents of this book will enable Christians to avoid the strident moralism that is often the prevailing attitude.
