Your religion

Some people with HIV feel they get a lot of support from their religious beliefs, from rituals or from natural remedies. Others get nothing from those things.

How do you view disease based on your religious beliefs?
Are you ashamed of your HIV? Or do your religious convictions actually help you to give your HIV a place in your life?geloof Christianity condemns dissolute behaviour but is also merciful towards people who are ill. Islam holds that people are obliged to do everything they can to keep themselves healthy. So if you become seriously ill, that is the fate that Allah has determined for you. Hindus see disease – like everything else in life – as inseparably linked with a person’s karma. By being faithful to their convictions, Hindus hope that the good gods will protect them from evil and unhealthy forces. How do you view disease from the perspective of your faith?
