Alice Kayongo

International HIV/AIDS Alliance Uganda - 2012 Fellow - 2012

Alice is the Regional Policy and Advocacy Manager at AHF where she is involved in health policy and advocacy work in Lesotho, Malawi and East and West Africa broadly. She also leads a team of volunteers within a not-for-profit initiative called “We Rise and Prosper” (WRAP) with the aim of contributing toward poverty reduction, improved health outcomes and fairness in society. Alice is an activist and an active participant in the health, women’s and children’s rights civil society movement and development sector in Uganda and internationally. She is part of many successful social movements and coalitions in Uganda. At the time of her Fellowship, Alice was finalizing a campaign on “What’s preventing prevention of HIV/AIDS in Uganda?”.

Fellowship Focus
Alice’s objective was to influence policy on Treatment as Prevention. She led efforts to adopt a national treatment program based on universal access to HIV/AIDS treatment and education, to increase health funding for HIV/AIDS and intensify the fight against corruption, to attract and retain health workers evenly in all parts of the country and to implement a combination of interventions for HIV prevention such as VMMC, Prevention of Mother to Child Transmission and PrEP. Her coalition-building work solidified civil society’s role in influencing the allocation of hundreds of millions of dollars through PEPFAR’s Country Operational Plans and the Global Fund in Uganda and globally.

In Their Own Words
With greater political and financial support, the Treatment as Prevention approach can make a big difference.
