CURRENT PROJECTS

BACKGROUND OF THE PROJECT

HIV/AIDS was first reported in Uganda in 1985 in the district of Rakai in the southern part of the country. Since then the number of infected people in the region and country generally increased. The NRM government since then has been pivotal in the fight against the scourge in that in 2000 it was recognized for their efforts against the disease there were  the According to the preliminary results of the recent Uganda HIV/AIDS Sero-Behavioural survey (UHSBS of 2004/5), the national prevalence of HIV is estimated at 6.4%.There are indications, however, that declines in prevalence have begun to stagnate over the past four years, and the massive inputs to combat the spread of HIV are not keeping pace with the evolution of the epidemic. All the efforts that have been put forward to fight HIV/AIDS from the beginning has involved several stakeholders but in the initial stages few religious leaders had been involved.

Ever since the emergence of the BAF, its leadership has advocated for the inclusion of religious leaders in a bid to fight the scourge. Since the admission of BAF in IRCU, the member religions and donors felt it imperative and necessary for the born-again churches to get involved in HIV prevention given the functional structures and population that they reach. To that effect therefore proposals were invited from the Born-again faith and after a competitive process, 7 of our member churches were a warded with an HIV prevention grant and these are distributed in six districts.

The current districts of project implementation include;

  • Kampala
  • Masaka
