Towards Research to Build Effective HIV Programmes in Uganda

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Behavior change interventions have been targeted by the Uganda government, donors and other stakeholders in tackling the HIV/AIDS epidemic. This paper examines the impact of these interventions on the populations' risk behaviours in HIV transmission or acquisition. In addition, this paper also examines qualitative aspects of HIV program development and implementation in Uganda and suggests both qualitative and quantitative research designs that will allow monitoring progress of program implementation so that effective changes can be made to get best outcomes. Implications of this data would assist both policy and public advocacy undertaken by social work professionals.
