Presidential Initiative Handbook

On June 6th 2017, the President of the Republic of Uganda, His Excellency General Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, launched “The Presidential Fast-Track Initiative on ending AIDS in Uganda by 2030.” This is the first such initiative in Africa and the entire world.

Anchored in “A Presidential Handbook”, the initiative spells out plans to tackle HIV &AIDS in Uganda through a five-point plan to; 1. Engage men in HIV prevention and close the tap on new infections particularly among adolescent girls and young women; 2. Accelerate implementation of Test and Treat and attainment of 90-90-90 targets particularly among men and young people; 3. Consolidate progress on eliminating mother-to-child transmission of HIV; 4. Ensure financial sustainability for the HIV response; and 5. Ensuring institutional effectiveness for a well-coordinated multi-sectoral response.
