The article is based on a press conference to announce the start of the Leadership Conference of the Lutheran Church in Africa.

Trainer’s Notes: While the article does give prominence to HIV/AIDS by mentioning it early on in the article, no effort is made to mainstream it into the rest of the coverage.               
Training Exercises: Trainees should discuss the positive and negative role that religion has played in the HIV/AIDS epidemic (issues that can be raised include the provision of care and support to individuals, families and communities, the church’s view on sex and the prevention, the role of women in churches).  Trainees could devise a questionnaire that would serve to determine the knowledge of parishioners of how HIV/AIDS in affecting their church.
