Abstract

The crises of HIV/AIDS infections and deaths in sub-Saharan Africa call for pragmatic solutions that are grounded in a broader vision of God’s mercy.

This approach is most urgent today as Africans continue to experience high rates of HIV infection among monogamous married couples who are sero-discordant.
