Abstract

"UNICEF has commissioned a series of assessments in eight countries of South Asia to look at current activities of FBOs and perception of religious leaders, along with views of communities, towards HIV/AIDS and possible actions. The assessments are largely an outcome of desk review and interviews, and the sample represents major faiths in the region - Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam as well as Christianity and Baha’i. The countries studied are: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, the Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. This overview distills from the country assessments, current activities and perceptions of religious groups, with the aim to understand the opportunities and constraints in expanding the role of religious leaders and faith-based organizations in HIV/AIDS prevention and care, targeting children and young people in South Asia."
