This thesis discusses a God-honoring way to relate to God’s image bearers who have HIV/AIDS and that way can be taught to Christians in Zimbabwe. The objective of the thesis is to develop a teaching series that will help Christians in Zimbabwe to live out the Great Commission with people with HIV/AIDS. The purpose of the thesis is to bring to attention the urgency of treating people living with HIV/AIDS with respect and dignity as God image-bearers.

The method used in this thesis to reach that objective is to conduct a twelve-week seminar to train Christian leaders who will in turn, teach the churches and communities. Medical issues and HIV medications such as antiviral drugs for treatment, prevention and transmission from mother to child were explored although there is no cure found yet. Cultural myths expose vulnerable children and women to HIV/AIDS because of culture and tradition. Cultural corrective and biblical corrective address the myths in order to bring about the reformation and a new paradigm of thinking.
