 Abstract

 

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and Acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) has infected and killed many who may or may not be under treatment globally and in Uganda in particular. Uganda since 1983-2019 has also tasted the impact of HIV / AIDS but with continued effort of National and International interventions, the prevalence has increased to its peak in 1991 and decreased down to is 6.2%; 7.6% among females and 4.7% among males. This corresponds to approximately 1.2 million people aged 15 to 64 living with HIV in Uganda in 2019. The HIV / AIDS management in Uganda, West Africa with the aid of international community can be a good example to other countries in a bid to stop HIV / AIDS progression. The global health and sustainability perspectives contributed immensely in Ugandan HIV / AIDS pandemic towards a good public health index to raise hope for HIV / AIDS control which could lead to total cure in near future.
