"This chapter, from the book HIV/AIDS Prevention, Care and Support: Stories from the Community, examines the response to HIV and AIDS of faith-based organisations in the Asia-Pacific region. The paper explores the range of activities these organisations have undertaken. The Buddhist monks from the Wat Norea Peaceful Children’s Home in Cambodia are at the frontline of providing care and support for people living with HIV and AIDS. At the Yayasan Dana Islamic Centre, part of the Indonesia Mosque Association Mushallah Muttahidah, HIV awareness messages are included in everyday sermons. The community-based organisation Anglicare-StopAIDS PNG in Papua New Guinea is putting HIV on the agenda in schools, at the workplace and among street children."
