Abstract
This article is an exposition of the Pastoral and Biomedical Responses to HIV
and AIDS programming by LUCSA. This was done through engaging with
members and workers of the church regarding their experiences of Home
Based Care (HBC) training as a way of managing and holistically responding
to the HIV and AIDS epidemic. This study explores the impact of the training
for caregivers, nursing staff and pastors in HIV and AIDS management
through a case study of the Thusanang HIV & AIDS project and Manama
Mission Hospital of the Western Diocese of the Evangelical Lutheran Church
in Zimbabwe (ELCZ) in Gwanda South. The study concludes that skills
training in HBC and Palliative Care have made a positive and remarkable
impact on the lives and work of HBC givers and pastors and that such training
has contributed to the retention of caregivers.
