Winnie Byanyima

In the last decades, President of Uganda, H.E Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has been fighting the spread of HIV in Uganda. He started the fight against the epidemic during the Lord resistance movement – UNAIDS Executive Director, Ms. Winnie Byanyima said during at the Civil Society Organisations Meeting that took place at the World Health Organization Uganda offices in Kampala.

As we reflect on this, the country is consistently happy by the president’s effort and not forgetting how much incredible work is happening across the country. There’s increased attention to the HIV responses that fundamentally shape the lives of citizens especially young people, and the UNAIDS is trying to enhance the understanding of the physical, emotional, stigma and discrimination that could still make young people suffer.

In the country, there’s an increased focus on maternal mortality, which feels like an epidemic that could be so easily stopped and to end the HIV, the information should be made available for those who choose it, those who need it

These efforts that the president of Uganda and the other NGOs are part of a collective movement to address the many challenges young people face daily in their lives. But there are times when we are all discouraged because of the new inflections young girls contracts every day and has been part of the reproductive health people.

We never could have imagined that in 2020 we do still be fighting the HIV, to stop the spread of the HIV, the National Sexuality Education Framework has to be passed such that the people have access to education and equal opportunities

People Living HIV in Uganda have proven to be a smart investment but we need to do more to bring urgency to a fight that is far from over. Each and every one of us must use our individual and collective power to ensure that we end the Epidemic disease

He is the UNAIDS Executive Director, Ms. Winnie Byanyima applauding the President of Uganda in the fight against HIV, and the people living with HIV of the world are counting on us; we have to believe them.
