NATIONAL HIV AND AIDS ACTION PLAN FOR THE FAITH SECTOR IN UGANDA

Uganda has made tremendous progress in reduction of HIV Prevalence, Incidence and AIDS related deaths over the years. A multi-sectoral approach with HIV mainstreaming has been in ensuring these results. Ugandans are religious at the core with over 99% believing in God. It therefore comes as no surprise that one of the key constituencies/stakeholders that Government has been working with in the HIV/AIDS multi-sectoral response is the faith based community.

Given their extensive reach and community presence, the faith-based community has been and continues to be at the forefront of implementing the Presidential First Track Initiative (PFTI) to End AIDS as a Public Health in Uganda by 2030. Their key contribution has been promoting safe behaviors and practices for HIV prevention; HIV testing and Adherence to Antiretroviral therapy.
