May 22, 2008
The Uganda AIDS Commission has drafted a strategy to streamline HIV/AIDS communication in the country, the New Vision reports. The plan seeks to unify various national HIV/AIDS awareness messages, UAC Director-General Kihumuro Apuuli said at a recent meeting for the Young, Empowered and Healthy initiative in Kampala, Uganda.
YEAH was launched in 2004 by UAC. The initiative designs and conducts behavior change campaigns for people ages 15 to 24 to help curb HIV, early pregnancy and school dropout rates (Baguma, New Vision, 5/22).
