Abstract

Young people in Uganda have never known a world without HIV/AIDS. Ignorance and denial fuel HIV, leaving young people without the critical information that could help them prevent infection. As of 2002, according to government estimates, HIV prevalence among young people in Uganda stood at an estimated 4.9 percent, with rates of 6.5 percent in major towns and 4.1 percent in rural areas. This is the summary and excerpts from the recommendations of this publication.
