Towards the end of last year, MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN UGANDA FACE TO FACE (MADUFAFA) and THE AIDS SUPPORT ORGANIZATION (TASO) - the Uganda's leading HIV/AIDS support organization joined hands to bring HIV medication closer to people staying in and around Kinaawa. Due to increased number of HIV positive cases in Wakiso district, Kinaawa in particular, MADUFAFA has partnered with TASO to offer free HIV medication at MADUFAFA offices. This means that people will no longer have to travel for long distance or miss Doctors' appointments due to lack of transport to go to far service providers. Currently one can come to MADUFAFA get HIV counseling and testing if confirmed positive he/she can be put on medication direct. Previously we have been making referrals to Mildmay Entebbe, Mulago, Kitebi and Nsangi all these service providers are very far from Kinaawa so bringing this service at MADUFAFA will save many people's lives. At the moment MADUFAFA Drug Distribution Centre (DDC) serves and cares 26 HIV+ people.
