Uganda

World Education has worked in Uganda since 2001 to strengthen the capacity of groups that deliver HIV and AIDS education, services, and support to vulnerable children and families affected by HIV.

As a partner on two USAID-funded initiatives, the Uganda AIDS Integrated Model District program (AIM) and the Uganda Program for Human and Holistic Development (UPHOLD), World Education built the capacity of district-level Ugandan NGOs to plan, implement, and monitor HIV and AIDS education in 29 districts. World Education also ensured community involvement in education to improve children’s learning and retention in school, increase parent-child dialogue and teacher-parent dialogue, and empower parent-teacher associations to increase parental and guardian involvement in children’s education.

In recent years, World Education has supported the Ugandan government to implement and monitor HIV and AIDS education. World Education has also continued to build the capacity of civil society and district government to coordinate health services and referral systems, and worked on building the capacity of local community-based organizations to provide comprehensive services to vulnerable children.
