Faith in Action promotes HIV testing and treatment and fights stigma associated with HIV. RIPHI partners with African American faith institutions and leaders to promote HIV/AIDS awareness by training clergy and community members and creating access to care.

African American churches and mosques play important roles in the social fabric of African American communities. Faith in Action has worked with over 200 African American churches to fight stigma, and promote HIV awareness, screening, care and treatment.


RIPHI has drawn on the Faith in Action activities to help inform local and federal policy about how best to work with faith institutions to prevent HIV. Additionally, RIPHI’s research about how best to engage African American clergy was published and used to inform our programs.
