Today, the students got the amazing opportunity to visit the largest AIDS focused organization in Uganda. From the very start, our two guides, Madam Patience and Miss Claire, greeted us for the day. In addition, all of the TASO patients waiting outside of the clinic gave us a round of applause and a welcoming that was a great representation of the Ugandan hospitality we have experienced here. Even with a very busy day, we were able to tour around the facility and talk with counselors, doctors, information managers, and others involved with the organization. This provided a great opportunity to many of those studying topics related to healthcare/AIDS while in Uganda and allowed time for questions involving their operations at TASO. We were also lucky enough to be able to listen to one of the performance troupes that TASO uses to educate the population. These performers are currently “living positively with AIDS” and after performing shared their personal stories about life with AIDS. With all of our experiences in mind at TASO today, will TASO be able to support the growing number of patients (about 30 new per day, three times per week) given the current facilities and services offered? While they have certainly had an impact on HIV/AIDS stigma and treatment, what kind of programs could TASO offer in the future to ensure the success of the program? A final note for this post: remember to be correct and consistent in your use!
