Faith-based organisation (FBO) stakeholders in the fight against HIV/AIDS will come together this Saturday, January 06 at the Dove Convention Centre to formulate a 30 to 90-day action plan to increase HIV/AIDS awareness in Barbados.

The event, hosted by the Barbados Evangelical Association (BEA), will see several FBOs seeking to “increase participants’ understanding of the key issues facing FBOs’ response to HIV and AIDS and aid in their understanding of what FBOs can do to assist with the reduction of AIDS-related stigma and discrimination”.

Topics to be discussed at Saturday’s symposium include: the importance of human sexuality when discussing HIV/AIDS; sexual practices and risk perceptions among Barbadian teenagers; the link between the church and media to mitigate the impact of HIV/AIDS; and confronting stigma and discrimination- reference to the bible study.
