Catholics For AIDS Prevention & Support (CAPS) logo


We are a network of catholics in Britain and Ireland promoting HIV prevention and support.

We aim to be a voice in the church for people living with HIV / AIDS and a catholic voice in the world of HIV / AIDS.

Our Objectives are:

- to promote education and prevention, treatment, care and relevant pastoral ministry for all those living with and affected by HIV/AIDS, particularly but not exclusively in the UK and Ireland.

- to promote the practical, financial, emotional, spiritual, sacramental and pastoral needs of people living with or affected by HIV/AIDS and to develop appropriate responses.

- to promote continuing reflection on all aspects of ethical, theological, and other challenges raised by HIV/AIDs, not least issues of social justice, through publication, seminars, and other relevant means.
