HIV Counseling and Testing Outreach in Uganda

1/20/16 – Success Story from a partner organization, Advancing Partners & Communities, about WellShare’s two-year Arua District Partnership for Family Planning and HIV Integration.

“Through partnership with local government and lower health centers, WellShare is offering community-based HIV Counseling and Testing (HCT) services through outreaches and is integrating family planning alongside other services like elimination of mother-to-child transmission of HIV, screening for cervical cancer, antenatal care, referrals for complicated/advanced cases, and treatment for minor illness. In July and August 2014, WellShare gave family planning training to 50 Community-Owned Resource Persons who were already providing HIV prevention education and referrals to key populations including commercial sex workers, youth, fishermen, transport workers and married couples. Through its integration efforts, WellShare has expanded access and uptake to family planning services for 27,000 of the most vulnerable rural women and men.”
