The Balm In Gilead is committed to a dynamic, community-driven approach that contributes to a lasting response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic and a reduction in HIV prevalence in the US, Caribbean and Africa. The Balm In Gilead’s Faith-Based Community Mobilization Model guides faith institutions in becoming HIV prevention and service delivery centers. The 5-stage model aims to move faith communities through a series of stages in order to strengthen leadership, organizational and management capacity; enhance technical knowledge and skills; and improve communication and advocacy competencies. The Balm In Gilead provides technical support to faith and community based organizations through the utilization of its national mobilization initiatives: The National Week of Prayer for the Healing of AIDS and Our Faith Lights the Way! HIV Testing Campaign.
