Frontline AIDS is deeply concerned by Uganda’s Constitutional Court decision not to overturn the Anti-Homosexuality Act, 2023, in its entirety.

Criminalising people on the grounds of gender, sexuality or lifestyle impedes their access to health services, and ongoing inequalities continue to hamper efforts to end AIDS as a public health threat by 2030.

According to the latest UNAIDS data, the world is off-track to meet HIV prevention targets, with 1.3 million new HIV infections in 2022, almost 1 million more than the 2025 target of 370,000.

“Frontline AIDS works tirelessly to ensure marginalised people have access to HIV prevention and treatment services irrespective of their sexuality, gender identity or lifestyle. We will accelerate efforts to provide lifesaving care and support to these communities and remain steadfast in achieving our vision to end AIDS for everyone, everywhere.”Lois Chingandu, Director of External Relations, Frontline AIDS
