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 data collection phase.
