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