Since 1985, APCN has become a network of resources from concerned, faithful individuals and organizations who maintain a coordinated response through diverse faith communities. We support people with HIV/AIDS with pastoral care and counseling, Â prevent future infections with biblically, theologically and scientifically informed prevention education, especially in targeted areas of high risk for infection. We pursue justice for those stigmatized and oppressed by this and other stigmatizing conditions.
