AIDS in Africa During the Nineties: Uganda Abstract:

This 67-page report is based on analysis and review of existing data in Uganda, the only country in sub-Saharan Africa to experience signficant declines in HIV prevalence during the 1990s. This report examines trends and knowledge and behaviors based on Ugandan demographic health surveys conducted in 1988/1989, 1995, and 2000/2001. Chapter 1 of this report provides an introduction to the history of HIV/AIDS in Uganda. Chapter 2 discusses the national and international responses to the epidemic. Chapter 3 presents information on the spread of HIV using data from the national surveillance system and from research studies. Chapters 4, 5, and 6 present trends in knowledge and attitudes about HIV, sexual behavior, and the use of condoms in the 1990s. Finally, chapter 7 presents information on the impact of the epidemic from other surveys and research studies.
