The overall objective of the consultation was to initiate dialogue between Government and the Faith Communities and lay a foundation for an ongoing forum which should strengthen collaborative efforts in addressing the HIV-AIDS epidemic. Specifically the Consultation intended to: (a) Identify key issues and concerns in the national response to the epidemic, which offer common ground for collaborative work between Government and the Faith Communities. (b) Identify points of difference in interpretation and approaches to issues raised by the epidemic with a view to respecting such differences while capitalizing on capacity and advantage in other areas. (c) Determine ways in which Government and the Faith Communities can collaborate in a mutually complementary rather than confrontational manner. (d) Put in place mechanisms for on-going partnership and collaboration for increased impact in the national response to the challenges posed by the HIV/AIDS epidemic.
