Challenge

There is amounting evidence that men of the age group 0f 40 - 49 are at a distinct disadvantage in the roll - out of ART in Uganda. Disproportionately fewer men than women are accessing ART, men are starting ART with more advanced HIV disease; men are more likely than women to die on ART, to interrupt treatment and to be lost to follow-up on ART. Despite this evidence of gender inequity in access to ART, not much has been done.This intervention will encourage uptake of treatment for men.

Solution

In Uganda 80% of the populace goes to traditional healers for their health needs, traditional healers can successfully adapt HIV prevention information into their clinical practices. Engaging 2,000 traditional healers in dialogues, informing them on HIV testing and treatment strategies, formation of a referral linkage system between traditional healers and Health centers and equipping traditional healers with counseling skills, we shall be able to mobilize men to access testing and treatment

Long-Term Impact

The project will engage 2,000 traditional healers in dialogues which will result in 14,000 boys and men to access HIV testing and those who are infected to enroll for treatment. This will improve their health and development since an unhealthy community is unproductive
