HIV/AIDS care and treatment Project

AIDS CARE AND TREATMENT PROJECT,

In 2017 Youth Partnership Uganda implemented a project titled AIDS care and treatment project targeting the Most at risk population (MARPS) especially the commercial sex workers in Mpondwe Lhubiriha Town Council in Bukonzo west kasese district using the moon light testing from bars and lodges and other hotsports , the project was being funded by Centre for Disease Control / Uganda Episcopal Conference/ Uganda Catholic Medical Bureau CDC/UEC/UCMB/, in partnership with Kasanga Primary Health Care; it was implemented from May to September 2017.

The project was successfully implemented and during the project implementation we trained 40 peer educators/counsellors, YPU staff managed to reach and tested 2836 people yet the targeted population as per the MOU were 2636,we managed to link 76  positive Commercial Sex Workers for ART at Kasanga Primary health Centre and through this project the target population and the wider community have greatly been sensitized on HIV/AIDS and STIs prevention hence minimizing re-infection using the 90,90,90 approach.

Youth Partnership Uganda services are not limited to moonlight services, however. YPU now has HIV/AIDS outreaches in various areas where they operate, offering free and accessible services to community members. Since we began outreaches in May, they have continued testing people in communities, individuals and provide counseling services those positive are referred to the health facility nearby.
