Abstract

HIV was the biggest issue that touched me during my decade with the Catholic church. For one thing, it challenged my faith in organised religion. Why were so many millions of people living in fear of a virus? Why were so many societies and world religions hijacked by those who wanted to blame, to stigmatise and exclude? During this time, that kind of negativity came from many healthcare professionals too.
