TAFU2 Interventions enhance delivery of HIV free babies

In the month of March 2018, Esther Kobusingye a VHT from Katooke during one of her home visits came across Kakyo, a woman married to Chance Patrick from Kisangwa, Enjeru Parish, Katooke Sub County. She was 3 months pregnant and had never gone for antenatal care (ANC); neither did she know her HIV status. ‘I took her through a one on one talk, regarding the importance of ANC and the need to know her HIV status’, Said Esther K (VHT) from Katooke.

The LGBT (Lesbians, Gays, Bisexual and Transgender) are among the main drivers of HIV epidemic in Uganda and yet the political and socio-cultural situation in Uganda limits accessibility and utilization of health services among this minority group. The UNAIDS’ ambitious target of stopping AIDS by 2030 can only be a dream unless the country improves the health care situation of these marginalized group. The HIV prevalence among MSM is estimated at 12.7%, doubling that of the general population (Crane Survey 2017).
