Uganda will join the international community to observe the Candle Light Memorial Day, in remembrance of those who have succumbed to AIDS. It is a time when we rise up to the struggle, mobilize communities for increased AIDS awareness at the grassroots, and call for political action, social change and advocate for total commitment in the fight against HIV.
This year's national event will be hosted by Kiryandongo District under the theme: "Joining Hands to Scale Up HIV Prevention". In collaboration with implementing partners and within their mandates, other districts in and outside the region are encouraged to observe their district specific events with their communities. Joining Hands to Scale up HIV Prevention.
