We’re on the frontline of the HIV epidemic in Uganda, working to support a variety of marginalised groups access vital prevention and treatment services.
In 2014, Uganda passed an anti-homosexuality law, which has made it harder for many in the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community to access HIV services. Men who have sex with men (MSM), people who use drugs, and young people – especially girls – also face significant risk of HIV transmission and difficulty getting to services.
DID YOU KNOW?
- More than 1.4 million people in Uganda are living with HIV.
- 34.2% of sex workers are living with HIV.
- 13.2% of MSM are living with HIV.
In 2013, our Uganda country office became an independent, autonomous organisation called CHAU. Since then, we have worked together on a multi-pronged approach to tackling Uganda’s HIV epidemic.
As well as supporting civil society organisations to build their knowledge and provisions, CHAU carries out important advocacy work to help these marginalised populations play a part in Uganda’s response to HIV.
We also work directly with a number of additional partners in Uganda to deliver a broad range of services to different population groups.
OUR IMPACT IN UGANDA
In 2017, through CHAU and our other in-country partners, we reached:
- More than 6,000 people with HIV prevention services.
- Almost 4,000 people with integrated HIV/sexual reproductive health and rights services.
