Members of civil society and security organisations want the Ugandan Parliament to two sections of the controversial HIV/AIDS Prevention and Control Bill
Members of civil society and security organisations want the Ugandan Parliament to two sections of the controversial HIV/AIDS Prevention and Control Bill, which seeks to criminalise a person who attempts or intentionally pass on HIV to another person.

The Northern Regional Prisons Commander, Alfred Okullu, warns that it will not be easy to prove that one has intentionally transmitted HIV/AIDS to another person.

"More resources should be invested in behavioural change in the fight against HIV/AIDS," explains Okullu.
