Hello!

who we are

Uganda Network of young people living with HIV & AIDS started in 2003 to provide leadership and coordinate the greater and meaningful involvement and participation of YPLHIV in Uganda in the national, regional and global HIV and AIDS response. UNYPA advocates improving the quality of life of young people living with HIV in Uganda and as a network. UNYPA is driven by the needs of young people living with HIV and implements an evidence informed national programme and advocacy for YPLHIV to lead healthy and productive lives. The elements of UNYPA’s national programme and advocacy include promoting universal access to HIV prevention, treatment, care, and support; fighting stigma and discrimination against young people living with HIV; and, promoting the greater involvement of young people living with HIV in the national HIV response.

The Uganda Network of Young People Living with HIV/AIDS (UNYPA) is a direct member of the National Forum of People Living with HIV/AIDS (NAFOPHANU) which was established in 2003 to provide leadership for young positives and create an enabling environment to participate meaningfully with a membership of 50,000 young people living with HIV/AIDS in the country so far.

Nicholas Niwagaba (Executive Director)

UNYPA is mandated to have three forums of Young Positives one of 10 – 18,19- 24 and 25-30 due to their different challenges in life though emphasis is being given to the 10- 24. UNYPA has contributed to the reduction of stigma towards people infected and affected by HIV/AIDS in the community through its outreach and programming efforts.
