Abstract:AIDS, which was first diagnosed in Uganda in 1983, has since reached epidemic proportions, with approximately 1.5 million persons estimated to be infected by 1991. Although the government of Uganda, together with several collaborating organizations, has commenced a comprehensive programme of preventive education and services, patterns of sexual behaviour, unless changed, threaten to facilitate the further spread of HIV. Social work professionals have adopted a broad range of activities in varying organizations in beginning efforts involved in combating the spread of HIV/AIDS. Further involvement may be related to the extent that the social aspects of the disease are given heightened attention by Ugandan policymakers. Bibliogr.
