Towards an AIDS free generation in Uganda (TAFU2)

Towards an AIDS free generation in Uganda (TAFU2)

Project

This community-based program will trace children living with HIV, who are not yet enrolled in health care or have dropped out, refer them to health centres and follow up on them after they are enrolled in care. Through community resource persons and village health teams, and using an integrated approach, we will address the barriers that are hindering children who are living with HIV access to treatment. 3600 children living with HIV will be traced and (re-)enrolled in health care as a result of the program.
