The Commission’s mandate is to coordinate and oversee the prevention and control of HIV and AIDS activities in Uganda. The Commission does not engage in direct implementation of interventions but takes strategic leadership in effective harmonization of action by the various players, within agreed policy and programs under thePrinciples of Three Ones:

    » One National HIV/AIDS Coordinating Authority
