Project goal: Improving the health status of people living with HIV/AIDS in Uganda through provision of the Basic Care Package (BCP) and promoting a Positive Living Lifestyle (PLL). The project used simple tools to empower PLHIV to avert opportunistic infections, delay progression of HIV and prevent transmission.
