At a general level, anyone working with Muslims on the challenge of HIV and AIDS will find this manual helpful. More specifically, it is intended for those whose primary purpose is to raise awareness among Muslims about the prevalence of HIV and AIDS in Muslim communities. It is also intended for those who are seeking ways of responding to HIV and AIDS in a just, compassionate, caring, and responsible manner. The manual is intended for use as part of a three day workshop. It presents techniques that enable trainers to draw out the insights and experiences of participants and to build on them and tries to connect individuals’ real life experiences with their faith so that faith becomes more rooted in their daily lives and less of an abstract set of ideas or dogma
