Our projects in Uganda are continuing with adaptations to ensure the safety of staff and patients. In all projects we are holding awareness sessions with staff and community partners to reinforce the importance of hand hygiene and physical distancing, and have established infection prevention and control and triage procedures.
In Arua and Kasese we have increased the supplies of antiretroviral therapy drugs to ensure there are enough supplies for patients during the COVID-19 crisis.
In keeping with restrictions on public gatherings, we have suspended our clubs and clinics for HIV positive teens and adolescents in Arua and Kasese. Toll-free phone lines are being set up to provide support.
