The nearly thirty five year old HIV epidemic in Uganda is currently at the cross roads. The past decade has seen significant drop in new HIV infections as well as AIDS-related deaths in the country, partly due to the extensive roll out of HIV treatment services. At the same time, HIV epidemic control has not yet been attained, with new HIV infections and AIDS burden still very high.

Similarly, some groupslike AGYW, key and priority populations, continue to have high HIV incidence, and sub optimal uptake of HIV treatment and prevention services especially among men, children, and adolescents./p>
