dc.description.abstract Although the churches are engaged in efforts of relief, care and welfare their intervention attempts, do not deal with the fundamental causes. According to Korten their interventions are classified as first generation interventions. They help alleviate the symptoms of a problem; however, they do not deal with the causes. HIV/AIDS is spread in the midst of ubiquitous poverty and deepens poverty by depriving poor families of income and redirecting scarce resources to care for the sick. HIV/AIDS prevention is thus an important development agenda. Development, understood as an improvement in the human condition, therefore implies prevention of HIV/AIDS and tackling poverty. This dissertation will argue that, unable to make a significant contribution to behaviour change at an individual level, churches should seek to play a more effective role in poverty eradication at the structural level. This, it is argued, will contribute indirectly to preventing HIV/AIDS. en_ZA
