This week, from March 1 to March 8, marks the 2015 National Week of Prayer for the Healing of AIDS (NWPHA). The annual HIV awareness campaign mobilizes communities of faith and is organized by the Balm in Gilead Inc., a nonprofit group that works to improve the health of African-American and African congregations.

The campaign’s goal, according to the NWPHA website, “is to strengthen the capacity of our nation’s faith communities to influence social norms and thereby contribute to the prevention of HIV disease and provide compassionate support to those who are affected.”

The website includes downloadable toolkits, community planning guides, family prayer guides and scriptural references for both Christian and Islamic communities.
