65% of new HIV infections occur in long-term relationships and not many people are aware of this, according to an opinion poll TTC conducted for World AIDS Day in Uganda.
Over the last few years, we’ve heard that HIV infection rates have been dropping. And it’s true in a lot of places, but not in Uganda. For the first time in 20 years HIV infection rates are rising! The number has actually gone up from 6.4 percent infected in 2005 to 7.3 percent today. Therefore tables are turning on the Uganda HIV/Aids success story.
