Uganda

The first Uganda Population-Based HIV Impact Survey (UPHIA) was conducted between August 2016 and March 2017 to measure the status of Uganda’s national HIV response. UPHIA offered household-based HIV counseling and testing, with the return of results. The survey team visited over 12,000 households to collect this information.

In 2020, a second UPHIA survey was launched by the Ministry of Health to assess the country’s progress towards HIV epidemic control. The UPHIA 2020 survey is currently in its post-data collection phase. Summary sheet findings can be found below.

In 2021, the Uganda Refugee Population-based HIV Impact Assessment survey (RUPHIA 2021) was launched to estimate HIV prevalence, assess viral load suppression among HIV-positive individuals, and collect information on uptake of and access to HIV-related services among refugee populations. The RUPHIA 2021 survey data collection has been completed and data is being analyzed.
