Catholics for AIDS Prevention and Support (CAPS)

CAPS are a network of Christians in Britain and Ireland promoting HIV prevention and support. CAPS aims to be a voice in the church for people living with HIV / AIDS, as well as a Catholic voice in the world of HIV / AIDS.

CAPS Objectives:

  • to promote education and prevention, treatment, care and relevant pastoral ministry for all those living with and affected by HIV/AIDS, particularly but not exclusively in the UK and Ireland.
  • to promote the practical, financial, emotional, spiritual, sacramental and pastoral needs of people living with or affected by HIV/AIDS and to develop appropriate responses.
  • to promote continuing reflection on all aspects of ethical, theological, and other challenges raised by HIV/AIDs, not least issues of social justice, through publication, seminars, and other relevant means.

CAPS also produce videos and resources for those living with HIV/AIDS, in their Positive Faith project.
