Background material

"I met Elly Katabira for the first time in Kampala in 2009. He knows very much about the early years of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Uganda, a country that was very hard hit in the 80´s and 90´s. Elly Katabira has been instrumental in developing the Ugandan HIV/AIDS response into a success story, along with Thailand and Brazil, drastically lowering the HIV prevalence thanks to a coherent national HIV/AIDS strategy." - Staffan Hildebrand
