The campaign, called "Go-Getters," was launched in 2003 and is widespread among many Ugandan schools and universities, according to China Daily. The campaign was launched in response to "shocking statistics that show HIV prevalence in Uganda is five times higher in girls aged 15 to 19 than in the boys the same age," according to program materials.
