As of 2015, 1,500,000 people were living with HIV in Uganda. Among adults, HIV prevalence among adults aged 15-49 stands at 7.1%; while among women it stands at 8.3%. Evidence-based prevention programs, such as condom programming, voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC), key population programs, pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), and antiretroviral therapy (ART) are cost-effective when they focus on those affected most. But we still have a long way to go.
