The Efficacy of the Law On Protection of HIV/AIDS Victims in Uganda.

ABSTRACT The study was about the study is the examine the efficacy of the law on protection of HVIAIDS Victims in Uganda, the study objectives were to establish the knowledge levels of HIV prevention among leaders in Kampala District, to establish HIVIAIDS prevention measures undertaken by leadership in Central, Kampala District and to identifY what is being done to Address Problems in Ugandan Law Relevant to HIVIAIDS. The study findings are inadequate HIV/AIDS prevention and care, and by the absence of adequate support systems for people with HIVIAIDS. More intensive educational work and other activities may be needed in rural communities. Some HIV victims somehow feel not accepted by members of the public. The study concluded that Uganda's strategy in addressing its HIVIAIDS pandemic is generally assumed to be just such a situation. In testing this assumption, it has been shown here that: Uganda's HIV/AIDS strategy, while impressive in some respects, has in fact not been an unequivocal success, and indeed may be currently backsliding, since the most recent (2005) prevalence rate of 7 percent of the adult population is higher than the 6-6.5 percent rate recorded in the previous measurements; Although formal law was not a major part of Uganda's HIV/AIDS strategy particularly prior to 1995, the unique circumstances in the country in the early years of the NRM government meant, in effect, that policy, including HIV-AIDS policy, arguably had a 'quasi-legal' nature. The study recommended that Existing laws and new legislation must address issues of inheritance, health care, employment, education, housing, and social security. Although education and information campaigns have been mounted with some success by both government and NGOs, it is vital that specific attitudinal work be undertaken to challenge particular stereotypes and myths about HIV.
