Ugandan Fishing Communities at High Risk of HIV / AIDS: IOM

Uganda - IOM Uganda has launched a report: ‘HIV Knowledge, Attitudes and Practices and Population Size Estimates of Fisher Folk in Six Districts in Uganda.’

In Uganda, some 130,000 people live in fishing communities and estimates suggest that HIV infection rates in these communities are almost 3-4 times higher than the national average for adults.

“Most of the fishermen are not aware of the risks of HIV. It is a dangerous disease and we have lost many people here,” explained Joshua Nununule, a fisherman from Kasensero fish landing site.
