Ugandan government warns against complacency in HIV response

Despite the massive HIV response by the Ugandan government and its partners, 380 people still get infected with HIV every single day. The new infections are threatening Uganda’s success story in responding to HIV in the late 1990s.
Speaking at the 2015 Western Regional HIV and AIDS Scientific Conference, Dr Zepher Karyabakabo, director of policy, research and programming at Uganda AIDS Commission, said Uganda has 1.6 million people living with HIV who need care, treatment and support. He added that 56,000 people die every year of HIV-related illnesses.
