HIV prevention in Kabarole, Uganda

Requested by

United Hands of Transformation Uganda

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

Our organisation is helping:
- Orphans and vulnerable children
- Poor people in hard to reach areas
- Students
- Unemployed youth
- HIV/AIDS victims
- Expectant mothers

In Kabarole District, just in reflection of national trends, HIV prevalence rates have stagnated and the number of new infections is increasing. Majority of the population live in rural areas and only 20% have a secure income. A predominance of high risk populations and poor access to basic services, particularly for marginalized groups, presents challenges for HIV prevention in Kabarole and necessitates a combination prevention strategy.

What is your project and how will it help?

The name of this project is: Strengthening Community Engagement for Prevention of HIV/AIDS among Vulnerable Population Groups

In order to address the HIV epidemic in Kabarole District, it is critical to target the structural and behavioral drivers with a focus on the identified most at risk populations. Prevention efforts need to provide these individuals with information, support and services as well as address the problems that heighten their risk, including lack of opportunity, gender inequality, and poverty.

- Youth-led peer education model that engages community volunteers, including those from targeted most at risk populations
- Targeted behavior change communication with a focus on at risk populations
- Sharing and learning amongst those involved in combination HIV prevention from grass-roots through to District level.
