NALINI, Arles. The Church's response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic in India. Acta theol. [online]. 2012, vol.32, suppl.16, pp.126-147. ISSN 2309-9089.

I gratefully remember working with Reverend Charles in a rehabilitation centre in the US and later with my HIV-positive friends in India. Their laughter, courage and resilience reminded me that it is not they who are HIV-positive but it is we who are all HIV-positive. In this article I would like to reflect on the cultural context of HIV/AIDS in India, its prevalence and the Church's response to this epidemic.
