Kadaga wants govt to operationalize AIDS Trust fund

The Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga appeals to government to operationalize the AIDS Trust fund before the end of this year to help people living with HIV/AIDs.

Parliament in 2014 passed a law which provided for the fund to generate money locally to finance campaigns to fight HIV/AIDS.

Kadaga says that though the regulations to operationalise the fund were approved by Parliament, it is yet to be activated hence affecting the fight against Hiv/Aids.

Kadaga also applauded the parliamentary Committee on HIV/AIDs for collaborating with citizens to raise awareness on its prevention and treatment.
