HIV’s New Frontline Uganda

Confident at first, Fauza tells her story. Her father was a fisherman and they lived locally in a modest home, scraping a living from the Ugandan shores of Lake Victoria and its equatorial surrounds. But then she got pregnant.


“When he found out, my father chased me from home… my parents say I’m a loss to them, that I have no future… the man whose child it was said ‘I don’t want you here’.”
