An HIV/AIDS-free life and marriage

Muzamiru Ngobi is 27 years old and resides in Nakamini (a 2011 Healthy Village) where UVP has just conducted an HIV outreach. He was able to attend and get tested for HIV/AIDS after getting education and group counseling by the nurse and counselor. When asked why he wanted to get tested for HIV/AIDS, he had this to say: "I am planning to get married in August this year and we have tested for HIV as a couple once since our relationship started. Today I have come alone for testing because she is out of the village but I will share my results with her and move with her to Namalemba health center for another round of HIV/AIDS testing so that we are able to live an HIV/AIDS free life and marriage." 

This was the first HIV/AIDS outreach day of 2013.  It was a success with over 150 community members coming for counselling and testing- many testing together with their partners or other family members.
