CARIS, the Christian AIDS Resource and Information Service, is a project of CABSA. CARIS aims to offer quality, reliable and accessible information and resources to empower Christian Initiatives in the fight against HIV and AIDS.
Through the work of CARIS:
- Churches and Christian organizations will have information available that would enhance their effectiveness, building on the experiences and resources of best practice models.
Churches and Christian organizations will have a platform to share information.
Churches and Christian organizations will have access to a variety of evaluated resource materials, to guide and optimise their efforts.
Networking around HIV and AIDS within Christian churches will be enhanced.
Funding for the first two years of the project was provided by the Anglican Church of Southern Africa HIV and AIDS Office.
