The National Aids Commission (NAC) says it is imperative to have a concerted approach in the fight against the HIV and Aids pandemic.
NAC’s vice-chairperson responsible for the faith community, the Reverend Gertrude Kapuma, said this on Friday when closing a two-day workshop for student ministers at Theological College in Zomba.
She said communities need to be approached with messages of behavioural change and the partnership in fighting HIV and Aids has no limitations.
Said Kapuma: “We have engaged student ministers and pastors because they have a platform to relay messages of behavioural change in their respective communities.
“They are role models in our communities and I am sure they will be able to transform many people from engaging in acts which can lead them to contracting HIV.
In his remarks, Zomba Theological College principal Leonard Katundu hailed NAC for initiating the programme.
