Support required for HIV/AIDS and family planning project in Uganda

Requested by

Care for African Kids

Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

Care for African Kids is an NGO in Uganda that aims to improve lives through
education, promoting the the use of family planning methods like contraceptive pills and the provision of relief.
In the mid 1980’s Uganda received world recognition for its early response to the growing HIV epidemic. Yet since 2002, the trends in the disease have been worsening with an average HIV prevalence of 6.4% in those aged 15-49, climbing to 10.1% in urban communities, with a prevalence of 7.5% in women compared to 5% in men and with the transmission rate highest amongst married couples (42%), the trends are increasingly affecting young families and children. Escalating numbers of new cases and an ever expanding population have put additional strain on an already overstretched health system, resulting in 94,000 deaths from the disease annually (20% of all deaths.
Care for African Kids has previously worked in this area, and now sends volunteer medical staff to clinics throughout the region.

What is your project and how will it help?

The project will contribute directly to HIV/AIDS prevention and family planning. It will also contribute to maternal and new born child health through targeting the sub population of vulnerable children who are at increased risk of contracting the disease, and to the protection of women and child rights.

The goal of the project is to reduce the number of newly diagnosed cases of HIV, reduce child abuse, violence and promote the the use of family planning methods like contraceptive pills in the Wakiso District over a 1 year period.

The specific objectives of the project in the Wakiso District are:
 To raise awareness of HIV/AIDS in schools and youth clubs
 To increase the number of people accessing tests for HIV and other STIs
 To train local health staff in methods of HIV education and prevention
 To identify and train resident parish mobilizers to support the provision of local HIV support services and promote access to treatment of opportunistic infection and anti-retroviral therapy

In regard to vulnerable children:
 To identify the number of vulnerable children heading households who at the risk of contracting the disease.
 To educate vulnerable children and provide the with ways to avoid risky behaviours.
 To increase access to testing and counselling for HIV and other STIs
 To promote access to treatment of opportunistic infections, anti-retroviral therapy and HIV support services for vulnerable children identified.

In regard to families:

 To introduce and teach the use of family planning methods in the region by married people.
 To introduce several methods of family planning but mainly the contraceptive type.
 To reduce the number of children to a single couple through use of contraceptives.
 To reduce infant mortality
 To reduce the risk of the children being born with HIV/AIDS.
 To protect the rights of children and mothers in the community.
