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.

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. 

Details on the findings can be found below.
