At least three deaths have been reported in London as a result of churches which claim to “heal” HIV and AIDS patients.
According to BBC London, some evangelical Christian churches are encouraging patients to stop taking anti-retroviral drugs because God can heal them.
The programme spoke to two women from east London who said they knew of female friends who had been encouraged to pray instead of taking their medication. Both patients died.
In another case, the director of a leading HIV research centre in east London said she had dealt with a case where a woman died after being advised by a pastor to come off her medication.
