Uganda has registered a significant decline in the number of Aids related deaths in the last ten years, according to new statistics released by the Uganda Aids Commission (UAC).

Statistics by Uganda Aids Commission (UAC) indicate that between 2010 and 2020, the country registered 22,000 Aids related deaths.
That translates into 2,200 deaths each year.

But Uganda Aids Commission (UAC) says Aids- related death declined by 61 percent in the country if compared to the previous ten years where 56,000 people succumbed to Aids related complications.

HIV experts have attributed the decline in the number of Aid-related deaths in the country to improved screening and prevention programmes and better treatment of health problems caused by HIV.

An estimated 1.4 million Ugandans are living with HIV with more than 80 percent already enrolled on Antiretroviral Therapy (ARV).
New HIV infections also declined by 60 percent from 94,000 to 38,000 between 2010 and 2020.
