Challenge

Katakwi district has HIV/AIDS prevalence rates of 3.7% with the district general hospital records indicating 7000 have been enrolled on ARVs. Refugee statistics on the numbers and prevalence of HIV/AIDS is very limited largely to negative and discriminative culture and lack of information. Unfortunately those enrolled on medication, have poor adherence and often drop out of treatment due to poor nutrition and lack of incomes to supplement their diet vital for proper medication.

Solution

In order to improve on the nutrition and incomes levels of positively living women and children, the project will provide each targeted beneficiary with one (1) local chicken that is pre-vaccinated and able to start laying eggs. It's hoped that this will provide a startup for the beneficiaries to start and scale up poultry farming necessary in providing them with eggs, meat and incomes for better nutrition and improved health.

Long-Term Impact

The long term impact of this project is improved health of women and children living with HIV/AIDS as a result of better nutrition, improved adherence to treatment and increased income levels.
