Uganda Summary Sheet 2016-2017

The Uganda Population-based HIV Impact Assessment (UPHIA), a household-based national survey, was conducted from August 2016 to March 2017 to assess the progress of Uganda’s national HIV response.

UPHIA offered household-based HIV counseling and testing, with the return of results and referral to clinics for those who tested HIV positive, and collected information about the uptake of HIV prevention, care, and treatment services. The survey estimated HIV incidence, viral load suppression (VLS), and the prevalence of HIV, syphilis, and seroprevalence of hepatitis B surface antigen at a population level.

This survey is the first in Uganda to measure population-level VLS. The results provide information on national and regional progress toward control of the HIV epidemic.

This project has been supported by the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) under the terms of cooperative agreement #U2GGh001226. The findings and conclusions in this report are those of the authors and do not necessarily represent the official position of the funding agencies.
