77,55 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book presents a history of AIDS control in Uganda, from the start of the epidemic in the early 1980s up until 2005. Uganda is well known internationally as an AIDS 'success story', both for its bringing down HIV incidence and prevalence over the 1990s, and for its innovative approach to scaling up the provision of antiretroviral therapy.

HIV/AIDS in Uganda

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Uganda has been hailed as a rare success story in the fight against HIV and AIDS, widely being viewed as the most effective national response to the pandemic in sub-Saharan Africa. President Yoweri Museveni established the AIDS Control Program (ACP) within the Ministry of Health (MOH) to create policy guidelines for Uganda s fight against HIV/AIDS. Uganda quickly realized that HIV/AIDS was more than a health issue and in 1992 created a Multi-sectoral AIDS Control Approach. In addition, the Uganda AIDS Commission, also founded in 1992, has been instrumental in developing a national HIV/AIDS policy. A variety of approaches to AIDS education have been employed, ranging from the promotion of condom use to 'abstinence only' programmes. There is suggestion, however, that the HIV infection rate in Uganda is on the rise, perhaps linked to over-emphasis on abstinence at the expense of condom use.

AIDS is registered as one of the major human catastrophes facing the world today, its consequences far reaching. In Uganda successful fight against HIV/AIDS is well recognised. By 1991 Uganda s HIV/AIDS prevalence stood at about 30% in some parts of the country. This had reduced to about 5% by 2001. This success largely depended on the social and interpersonal networks referred to as social capital. The book documents the role of NGOs in mobilising social capital at different levels and its effect on HIV/AIDS challenges in Uganda. A major finding in the book is that the ways individuals and groups are connected and interact with each other are important mechanisms for alleviating HIV/AIDS. From Uganda s story there are three lessons learned, 1. Earlier contextual explanations such as witchcraft as the cause of the disease which had dominatedcommunity approaches to HIV/AIDS are demystified,2. Fighting HIV/AIDS goes beyond the medical profession to include the social approaches,3. Emerging issues such as religious fundamentalism have negative impact on Uganda s success story and may explain new trends in HIV/AIDS prevalence

SEX WORK AND RISK TO HIV/AIDS IN UGANDA
60,70 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The HIV/AIDS pandemic still remains a major health problem in Uganda. While early at the onset of the AIDS epidemic, infection rates among certain groups of commercial sex workers in Uganda were as high as 80%, the impact of AIDS interventions on sex worker behavior and HIV/AIDS prevalence among this group was not well known. Given the central role of sex workers as high frequency transmitters in the epidemiology of STD and HIV/AIDS, these groups need priority focus in efforts to control sexually transmitted diseases and HIV/AIDS. In this book, the author undertook an in-depth study of the causes and nature of prostitution, risk practices, vulnerability and sexual behavioural patterns related to HIV/AIDS among commercial sex workers in Kampala City, the Capital of Uganda. Ultimately, the study sought to provide information on what interventions were necessary for protecting sex workers and their clients from HIV/AIDS infection. The book aims at providing guidance to policy makers and program providers of the critical facets in fighting HIV among Sex workers and the genaral public, who constitute their clients.
