The Collaborative for HIV and AIDS, Religion and Theology (CHART), based in the School of Religion, Philosophy and Classics, organised a consultation: “Contending with HIV, Contending with the Church: Building a Redemptive Religious Community”, at the Salt Rock Hotel on KwaZulu-Natal’s North Coast. 

Participants included Professor Beverley Haddad, Professor Gerald West, Professor Philippe Denis, Professor Sue Rakoczy, Dr Herbert Moyo, Ms Bongi Zengele, Ms Nokhaya Makiwane and Ms Cherry Muslim, religious leaders from both Christian and Muslim communities, and co-ordinators of faith-based organisations from South Africa, Zimbabwe, Rwanda, Namibia, Kenya and Zambia.

Organisations attending included the International Network of Religious Leaders Living with and Affected by HIV and AIDS (+INERELA), the Ecumenical HIV and AIDS Initiative in Africa (EHAIA) and the Christian AIDS Bureau for Southern Africa (CABSA).

In addition to the plenary presentations, participants spent a great deal of time in small groups where the findings of the CHART research project: “The Cartography of HIV and AIDS, Religion and Theology”, were shared (see: www.chart.ukzn.ac.za).  The fruitful discussions led to planning for future work in religion and HIV and mapping this agenda.
