HIV/AIDS, spiritual care, pastoral care, chaplaincy


A diagnosis of HIV no longer implies a rapid progression to AIDS and to inevitable death. From the perspective of her work in Edinburgh, the author describes how the work of chaplaincy has changed in response. It now seeks to offer ongoing spiritual and pastoral support, in a variety of settings, to those living with HIV, and to their various communities within Scotland.
