Report: Survey of the Sexual Practices of Youth Attending Evangelical Churches in Antigua, St. Lucia and St. Vincent

Bishop Gerald A. Seale, DD General Secretary and CEO, Evangelical Association of the Caribbean

There is general indifference among Evangelical congregations in the Caribbean to the AIDS pandemic. Congregations need to be mobilised to enable congregants to properly guard against the disease, to reduce and eventually remove stigmatisation of and discrimination against persons living with HIV (PLWH), and develop adequate mechanisms that enable Evangelical Christian youth to handle their sexuality within an understanding of Biblical teaching, scientific accuracy and culturally appropriate methods.
