South Asia Inter-Religious Council on HIV/AIDS

The South Asia Inter-Religious Council on HIV/AIDS (SAIRC) is a network of religious leaders committed to combating HIV/AIDS through cooperative advocacy, anti-stigma and discrimination initiatives, and compassionate prevention and care for those living with and affected by the disease. SAIRC held its inaugural meeting in New Delhi in November 2004. Led by Secretary General Akhtarul Wasey, the council developed a "Consensus Framework for Action" outlining the new organization's goals, structure, and next steps; it especially emphasized addressing stigma, educating religious leaders and youth about HIV/AIDS, and mobilizing community resources to more effectively respond to the HIV/AIDS pandemic. The South Asia Inter-Religious Council on HIV/AIDS has received support from Religions for Peace and UNICEF.
