 Questions and answers

Is it possible to have a traditional funeral if someone dies of AIDS? 

Yes. A person who dies of an AIDS-related illness is entitled to the same service options offered to anyone else. If public viewing is consistent with local or personal customs, that option is encouraged. Touching the deceased's face or hands is perfectly safe. Because the grief experienced by survivors may include a variety of feelings, survivors may need even more support than survivors of non-AIDS-related deaths.
