Abstract: Compassion, Conversion, Care – as a campaign motto an inspiring call to action, but how does this translate into daily life? How can individuals and local churches go about preventing HIV, providing treatment, supporting persons living with HIV and AIDS, and building inclusive communities? The LWF handbook for HIV and AIDS work, Grace, Care and Justice, brings together Lutheran theological and pastoral understandings on accompanying persons living with and affected by HIV and AIDS in order to empower leaders at all levels of the church. Further, it acts as a basic primer on medical aspects, prevention, home-based care, gender concerns and advocacy.
