World AIDS Day 2012: Pastor Tharcisse's sermon to remember

Nov 26, 2012, 03:53 PM, Gitega, Burundi

HIV related stigma and discrimination remain some of the main challenges in responding to HIV. They discourage people from getting tested and prevent open discussion about the virus. Christian Aid works with faith leaders in Burundi to challenge discrimination and promote care and support across communities. In this podcast, Christian Aid's Ally Carnwath reflects on witnessing the personal testimony of Tharcisse Harerimana, an HIV positive Pastor and member of Christian Aid partner BUNERELA+, who is working hard to encourage a greater openness and understanding within the community around HIV.
