Uganda and Malawi Offer Opposite Lessons for AIDS
August 7, 2012
HIV prevention and treatment efforts in small, poor Malawi offer a model for other African nations and a contrast to the cautionary tale of Uganda, a large and relatively prosperous county struggling with an alarming rise in infections.
Another explanation is a more socially and religiously conservative approach taken by President Yoweri Museveni's government. A proposed bill further criminalizing homosexuality would stall HIV prevention efforts by driving risky gay sex underground, advocates say.
