Current Projects

“The Local Non-Governmental Partnerships for sustained country leadership in Uganda”

. Also known as the Local Capacity Initiative (LCI), this 3-year PEPFAR-funded project aims at increasing access of HIV and AIDS services for KPs with a focus on sex workers (SWs) and men who have sex with men (MSM). These sub-categories have a disproportionate burden of HIV. The HIV prevalence among SWs is 35-37% while that among MSM is 13.7%. Over 40-50% of the new HIV infections in Uganda come from those two sources (UAC/MOH 2014, Cranes survey 2010). Since its inception in April 2015, the LCI project is building institutional capacities of 8 MARPs organisations in three districts of central Uganda – Kampala, Mukono and Wakiso.
