This book examines the responses of African Initiated Churches to HIV in Zimbabwe. It describes the changing attitudes of African Initiated Churches to the pandemic, exploring the adjustments that have been undertaken to both doctrine and practice within the movement. The contributors show how the rigidity that often characterizes African Initiated Churches (such as opposing the use of condoms, insisting on polygamy and insisting exclusively on faith healing) have gradually given way to more constructive approaches to HIV and AIDS .
