Results and best practices from the Towards an AIDS free Generation in Uganda (TAFU) programme. This programme was Aidsfonds’ first paediatric HIV community intervention programme. It trained up community health workers to identify HIV positive children, and link individuals to care and ongoing support. The programme was co-created through community leadership and engagement with key stakeholders, building on community knowledge of the needs of children living with HIV. Towards an AIDS Free Generation in Uganda changed
the way that community-based paediatric HIV services were delivered.
