This study was designed to determine the knowledge and attitude of Christian ministers of religion on the HIV infection and AIDS. It was carried out on 70 Christians ministers of religion residing in Kingston and St. Andrew. These ministers were selected from nine church groups comprising 58 denominations and 230 churches in Kingston and St. Andrew. The instrument used was a self administered questionnaire. Knowledge on HIV and AIDS was very high with ministers obtaining a mean score of 30.5 marks out of a possible total of 39 marks. Overall, there was little variation in knowledge score between church groups. Involvement of ministers in activities related to HIV or AIDs prevention or treatment was minimal 16 percent; and only 9 percent had any training for couselling. All felt that ministers could contribute towards the prevention of the HIV infection, and identified a number of ways. The majority of the ministers felt the Ministry of Health was not doing sufficient to deal with the HIV/AIDS problems and suggestions for improvement were given. Recommendations include: Inclusion of at least one representative from each church group on the National AIDS Committee, and organization of counselling seminars targeted at ministers of religion.(AU)
