Amid a jubilant concert, speeches by dignitaries, and other festivities to commemorate World AIDS Day in Uganda, a record 3,518 people took an HIV test at Kampala’s Nakivubo Stadium on Tuesday, Dec. 1.
The staggering day-long event, which by some accounts attracted a crowd of over 6,000, was organized by AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) Uganda Cares with the financial support from UNAIDS. While Uganda AIDS Commission (UAC) handled the logistics of the commemoration.
