Global Health Experts Express Concern Over Uganda’s Anti-Gay Law In Letter To GAC

The Center for Global Health Policy’s “Science Speaks” blog reports on a letter sent on Wednesday to U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator Ambassador Deborah Birx expressing concern over the impacts of Uganda’s recently enacted Anti-Homosexuality Law on HIV/AIDS treatment and prevention programs in the country. Leaders of the Infectious Diseases Society of America’s HIV Medicine Association and the Center for Global Health Policy sent the letter “amidst reports that health services have been curtailed following donor cuts to government and faith-based programs, and that plans to accelerate treatment access in Uganda were being reconsidered,” according to the blog (Barton, 4/9).
