Uganda: Door-to-Door HIV Testing Starts in Kampala
June 7, 2013
On June 5, the Uganda Health Marketing Group launched a three-year mobile van project to provide HIV/AIDS counseling and testing (HCT) for high-risk populations in five divisions of Kampala, Uganda. Prossy Kayiira, HCT coordinator, stated that the project targeted populations such as boda boda (motorcycle taxi) riders, mechanics, commercial sex workers, homosexuals, and bus and taxi drivers in slums, streets, car parks, clubs, and other "comfort places." The intervention aimed to deliver awareness and prevention to the public and to support existing Kampala Capitol City Authority clinics.
