AIDS IN SUB-SAHARAN AFRICA: BETWEEN DENIAL AND TRUTH TELLING

H. Jurgens Hendriks

Abstract


The article tells the story of how interorganizational relations in Sub-Saharan
Africa started to develop and how it came to focus on the HIV/AIDS1 scourge. The
Network for African Congregational Theology’s mission is quoted verbatim. A
discussion of the principles for interorganizational relations in a Third-World
context follows. A priority for the Network seems to be the facing of the HIV/AIDS
denial problem, which can be successfully dealt with only if a hermeneutically
sensitive multidisciplinary interorganizational approach is followed. Reasons why
people on the ground deny and seemingly ignore the awful reality of HIV/AIDS are
given and the cultivation of a new culture of truth telling to face the scourge is
argued.
