FACTS ABOUT HIV/AIDS IN UGANDA

In September 2012, the Ministry of Health (MOH) released the results of the Uganda AIDS Indicator Survey (UAIS) 2011, which indicated that Uganda continues to experience a severe HIV epidemic. HIV prevalence in the general population (15 to 59 years old) is estimated to be 7.3% in 2011, compared to 6.4% in 2004-5. HIV prevalence is higher among women (8.3%) than among men (6.1%). Compared to the 2004/5 UAIS survey, the magnitude of change in HIV prevalence varied across regions: Central, Western, Southwestern and Northern regions remain the worst-affected while modest declines in prevalence were recorded in the East-Central and Mid-Eastern regions. Of particular concern is the rise in HIV prevalence among young people aged 15-24 years generally and in all age groups specifically in the West Nile and North-East regions that previously were least affected.
The UNAIDS’ most recent World AIDS Day Report warned of increasing unprotected sex (both sexes) and multiple partners (women). The estimated number of people infected with HIV has risen to 1.39 million, 55% of whom are female and 14% are children under the age of 15 years.
HIV is predominantly heterosexually transmitted, accounting for 75-80% of new infections. However, population subgroups show that the most affected and the risk factors and drivers of HIV infections have evolved in recent years. Studies show an HIV prevalence of 1.2% in university students, 15-40% in fishing communities, 37% among sex workers, 18% in the partners of sex workers, and 13% in the group of men with a history of having sex with men. Strikingly, 35% of new infections occur amongst self-reported monogamous individuals which raises concerns regarding rising multiple concurrent partnerships. The remaining transmissions are largely due to mother-to-child HIV transmission.

HIV/AIDS Program
In spite of efforts to sensitize the local people, HIV/Aids prevalence is still high in most parts of Uganda and Yumbe in particular. Amidst all this, children have been the most affected because some of them are engaged in commercial sex for a living, have little or no access to HIV/AIDS awareness information, mother to child transmission among others. Most of the children either lost one or both parents to HIV/AIDS, suffer from the pain of seeing their parents dying from this scourge.. This program aims at ensuring that children about the danger of HIV/AIDS and problems associated with early involvement in sexual matters.

Program activities include:

i) Voluntary testing and counseling.
This is intended to reduce the spread of HIV/AIDS infections. Services are offered at our project site every last Saturday of the month. Children, the youth women and the elderly have all been offered both pre test and post testing counseling. After which, testing is done by our partner medical team.
ii) Family support.
Given the devastating effects of HIV/AIDS on families, CCEDUC supports children orphaned by HIV/AIDS and other vulnerable communities. We extend basic support such as scholastic materials . Beneficiaries are selected among needy members of the community, assessed and given the necessary support on a quarterly basis.

iii) Support HIV/AIDS at work place.

Given the high prevalence of HIV/AIDS at work place, CCEDUC has emparked massive HIV/AIDS sensitiation among the civil servernts, Hotels, Traders, Boda Boda riders, Sexual workers, prisoners among others

iii) Malaria control.
Malaria is the number one killer disease in Uganda, killing many children and pregnant mothers particularly. To curb the spread of malaria, CCEDUC is looking for partnership with both local and international partners to sensitize remote communities on malaria control and prevention strategies and plans to distribute mosquito nets and anti malaria drugs,this will be during our our home visits.
