A Program of Hope and Compassion For and From Our Community
GAA provides free anonymous and confidential HIV testing in houses of worship and faith-based organizations. Since 2012, GAA, functioning like a mobile unit, offers religious leaders the opportunity to have their house of worship become an HIV testing site under the GAA/GREATNES umbrella.
GAA provides spiritual and medical support to people living with HIV/AIDS as well as their loved ones through pastoral care. The services can be both individual sessions as well as support groups within houses of worship.
Using a curriculum created by theologians, infectious disease specialist and persons living with HIV/AIDS, GAA/GREATNES provides preventive educational, capacity development and anti-stigma training sessions for religious leaders throughout Michigan, Africa, and Europe.
