    Our Programs

    Getting out and about in the community is the only way to meet those who are seeking education and counselling. Cancer and HIV/Aids are still regarded as taboo in many regions of Africa, and our focus is on bringing an understanding of the causes, treatment options and outcomes to improve the lives of those inflicted.

    Our outreach programs consist of a number of key components, and are undertaken in various regions of Uganda. Programs typically run for 1-4 weeks, depending on the population of the region.
