Proofs: A world without HIV
The AIDS Support Organization (TASO) dreams of a world without HIV. In fact, they don’t just dream about it. They’re doing something about it. They live to contribute to the process of preventing HIV infection, restoring hope and improving the quality of life of persons, families and communities affected by HIV in Uganda. Recently, I jumped in a truck with some TASO support staff to visit one of their remote clinics outside the capitol of Uganda, Kampala.
Thanks to funds from PEPFAR, CDC, USAID, DFID, WFP and Irish Aid, TASO reaches millions of Ugandans with everything from radio programs about prevention to music, dance and drama awareness performances to antiretroviral treatment.
