Today, 1.5 million people in Uganda are living with HIV. Research has shown that if treated, people affected with HIV can live full, dignified lives. However, far too many people fail to access the proper care and support necessary to survive – and each year, 28,000 Ugandans lose their lives to AIDS-related deaths.
In order to bring about an HIV-free Uganda, AMS tests over 600 new clients every month, linking an average of 96 new HIV-positive clients to quality, comprehensive care. In addition, AMS provides free antiretroviral treatment (ART) to over 14,000 clients, including 1,000 HIV-positive youth and adolescents. In order to continue providing lifesaving health care to those who need it most, we need support from partners like you.
Please consider donating to one of our many projects through our Global Giving platform. This month, we are wrapping up the year by focusing on some of our most vulnerable clients: women, mothers and children. Your support throughout the rest of 2017 will have an enormous impact on the lives of our clients, helping babies be born HIV negative, ensuring children grow up healthy and strong, supporting adolescents through the dual challenge of stigma and puberty, and helping women maintain good reproductive health and well-being.
