PLACE Assessments in Uganda

District-level data now provides reliable evidence to better understand where to reach those most likely to acquire and transmit HIV in Uganda.

Uganda PLACE Districts

In sub-Saharan Africa, Uganda has a long history of successful HIV prevention that has decreased HIV prevalence from between 20 percent to 30 percent to now under six percent. However, to enhance efforts to reach prevention and treatment targets, the country sought to augment national-level data with district-level data so that tailored, localized responses and strategic use of resources could be developed. Uganda conducted a new round of the Priorities for Local AIDS Control Efforts (PLACE) in 25 districts in Uganda to collect that data. Now, district-level data provides reliable evidence to better understand where to reach those most likely to acquire and transmit HIV.
