HIV and AIDS
According to UNAIDS there are 1.8 million people living with AIDS in Uganda. TPO Uganda provides psychosocial support to families affected by HIV and AIDS. We work AIDS orphans to strengthen their ability to cope and thrive. We pay special attention to girl mothers, youth, and children vulnerable to abuse and exploitation, those heading households or looking after sick relatives.
