Ministry of Health, Uganda
RECOFU receives support from the Ugandan Ministry of Health for HIV/AIDS prevention activities in local communities. In particular, the Ministry of Health supplies RECOFU with condoms, which are given out free of charge to the most at risk populations, especially urban motorcyclists (boda-bodas), sex workers, long distance truckers and cohabiting couples, among others. Not only has this contributed to the prevention of the further spread of HIV/AIDS and other STDs but it has also reduced the rate of unwanted pregnancies in the community. In addition, the Ministry of Health also provides us with Information, Education and Communication (IEC) materials on HIV/AIDS prevention, care and management.
