Take Your ARVs, Ministers Urges Christian Patients

Health Minister Dr. Chitalu Chilufya has expressed concern that some church leaders have continued advising their members who are HIV positive against taking drugs.

The Health Minister says this will not help the nation in fighting this vice.

Dr. Chilufya has reminded the church that they are a critical stakeholder in the fight against HIV/AIDS saying government would embark on an aggressive community testing for HIV, which will need the support and help of the church.

He has also urged patients on antiretroviral drugs (ARVs) against absconding their medication in order to surpass the viral load and ensure that the country’s records HIV free.

Dr. Chilufya says the church should use the platform to reach out to everybody that ARVs are a hope of today and that children must take ARVs so as to have a better nation for the children.

    Fake churches and false prophets are behind this ,take much caution when registering them.To many back yard churches that have mushroomed of late.

    It’s really a sad state of affairs that we still have church leaders who in their ignorant manner of service are indirectly killing innocent souls by preaching sermons of distraction..

      @GBV. Please that when healed on earth he used several methods, at one time he just said your has healed you go your way, on another occation he spate on the ground and rubbed the sand against the blind mans eyes and he got healed. Why didnt Jesus just say” you are healed go your way” at every healling occasion? God has given us knowledge to help ourselves, he also wants to participate in his healing. We are not to seat domant because God is a healer.NO!

    Engage the churches as major stakeholders in information dissemination for health. The clergy can then use this understanding and provide appropriate guidance to their church members . Bring them on board, train them and let them be partners in prevention and treatment not only for HIV/AIDS but other societal ills.

    If you don’t have faith in christ Jesus.Don’t even waste your time or open your mouth to talk anything about God. Healing and answered prayers belong to believers who recognize christ Jesus as their personal savior and not for the Pharisees or sadducees.Read John 1:12.Because the Pharisees are far to see and the saducees are sad to see and they can’t perceive anything good out of the Lord.
