World AIDS Day: Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago encourage Ugandans to step up

As we commemorate World AIDS Day 2022, Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago encourages Ugandans to step up our commitment by joining the struggle to stop new infections and cases of HIV/AIDS.

Kampala has an HIV prevalence of 6.9% among adults aged 15 to 64 years which is higher than the national prevalence of 6.2%. With support from the development partners, KCCA currently attends to more than 30,000 HIV/AIDS patients.

Particularly this year, the UNAIDS is urging each of us to address the inequalities which are holding back progress in ending AIDS. These inequalities which perpetuate the AIDS pandemic are not inevitable; we can tackle them. We’re also duty-bound to jointly secure the rights of people living with HIV and fight HIV stigma and discrimination.
