PCEA HIV/AIDS Policy
Mandated by the 18th General Assembly April 2006

Prelude:

The HIV/AIDS problem is large. It is a health and socio-economic problem affecting the individual, family, community and all humanity. As of the end of 2005 more than two million Kenyans [adults and children] have died from AIDS.

Transmission of HIV [the virus causing AIDS] is through (1) sexual intercourse with an infected person, (2) blood infected with HIV and (3) an infected mother to her infant. Of the three ways of transmission, sexual intercourse accounts for 80 to 90% of the spread.

In society HIV/AIDS has been much talked about, but in reality little has been done. It can be asked why should the church be any different; why should the church become involved? The answer to these questions is not just because the church’s own members are infected or affected by HIV/AIDS but because the church of Jesus Christ is a body that loves and cares for all of God’s children. The church has the potential to effectively address the HIV/AIDS problem due to its grass-roots infrastructure as well as the general respect that society shows towards the church.

Article Nine of the Constitution of the PCEA reads: “This Church, in the discharge of its mission in the world, cannot confine itself solely to the preaching of the Word and the administration of purely religious ordinances. Believing that it is entrusted with a ministry not only to the souls of men, but also to their bodies and minds, and following the example of its master, who went about doing good, it claims the right, as it shall see fit, to undertake educational, medical or charitable work for the benefit of all who desire its help; and declares its willingness to cooperate with governmental and other agencies in promoting the mental, physical and moral welfare of the whole community.”
