New HIV infections increasing among girls
There is a glaring danger which if not addressed could stunt the battle against the epidemic.

As uganda intensifies the fight against hiv/aids, there are milestones to celebrate such as reduction in numbers of new infections countrywide, reduction in cases of mother to child transmissions, and increase in numbers of patients enrolled on arv treatment among others.

However, there is a glaring danger which if not addressed could stunt the battle against the epidemic.  

A recent unaids report shows that there are 360 new hiv infections occurring every week among adolescent girls and  young women between the ages of 15 and 24.
