HIV/AIDS

Despite a remarkable campaign against HIV/Aids in Uganda, which saw prevalence rates fall from 18 percent in 1992 to 6.4 percent in 2005, infection rates have started rising again. The 2011 National Aids Indicator Survey carried out by the Ministry of Health shows HIV prevalence rates at 7.3 percent, with 130,000 new HIV infections every year.

Our Goals

UNDP is supporting the integration of HIV/Aids into national and sub-national plans, into budgets, monitoring processes, legislation and policy discussions for managing aid flows and an assessment of the condition’s effect on Uganda’s economy.We work to integrate HIV/Aids concerns into national and subnational plans with a view on lowering the prevalence rates and protecting the rights of people living with HIV/Aids. more
