MIAA - Malawi Interfaith AIDS Association

The Malawi Interfaith AIDS Association (MIAA) that was established in 2003 as an interfaith service agency and is composed of the Malawi Council of Churches (MCC), Evangelical Association of Malawi (EAM), Episcopal Conference of Malawi (ECM), Christian Health Association of Malawi (CHAM), Muslim Association of Malawi (MAM), Quadria Muslim Association (QMAM), and the Association of Christian Educators in Malawi (ACEM) continues to play a pivotal role in the coordination and facilitation of HIV and AIDS programming in the country.

The main aim of the Secretariat is to facilitate a united commitment of Faith Communities in the fight against HIV/AIDS. MIAA has now gained experience and acquired the necessary skills to coordinate a robust faith based response to the community. Since her establishment despite the “teething” problems the Secretariat now has developed all the necessary structures to scale up the response. MIAA will consolidate the faith communities’ strengths, credibility, that is grounded in communities offering them the opportunity to make a real difference in combating HIV/AIDS.
The faith community response complements the overall national response for HIV and AIDS in this.
