oa Missionalia : Southern African Journal of Mission Studies - AIDS - still posing an unanswered question
In this article the author looks at ten years of developments regarding the campaign to prevent the spread of HIV/Aids in Southern Africa and the response of Christian communties to the pandemic. He criticises the biomedical assumptions underlying the official prevention campaign, with its exclusive emphasis on 'safe sex' practices, rather than on socio-cultural factors that would lead to an ethical campaign emphasising patterns, of 'closed' sexual relationships. The latter approach will highlight the urgent need for programmes of sex education.
