About This Event

Summary

The Medical Humanities & Health Studies Program is excited to announce an upcoming seminar titled "The Relevance of Healthcare Ministry in Churches' Response to HIV and AIDS: Assessment in the Free Methodist Church of Southern Africa." This lecture will be given by Innocent Iyakaremye, University of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. This event is co-sponsored by the Committee on African and African-American Studies.

Iyakaremye's presentation will assess the response of the Free Methodist Church of Southern Africa to HIV and AIDS, major threats currently besieging South Africa. Drawing from fieldwork results from interviews with church leaders, church members, and healthcare-givers, he will argue that the theory of missio Dei can be a resource for the Wesleyan Health Care Ministry in addressing HIV and AIDS.

Originally from Rwanda, Iyakaremye currently serves as University of KwaZulu-Natal's Monitoring Officer of Memory of HIV and AIDS Project in Sinomlando Centre, while completing his Ph.D. in Gender and Religion. Iyakaremye previously worked at the University College Cork, Ireland, with its Child Studes Unit/TROCAIRE Project.

This presentation will be held on Thursday, October 18, 2012 from 12:00-1:00 PM in Cavanaugh Hall 438. Please RSVP to medhum@iupui.edu.
