In line with the above, on 11th March 2015, Public Health Ambassadors Uganda (PHAU)​ in partnership with AHF Uganda Cares commemorated Post International Women and Girl’sDay 2015, at the YMCA The International Women’s Day 2015 theme was “Women and Girls against HIV/AIDS - Make It Happen becauseGirls Live Matter”. Raising awareness and knowledge on women’s health and rights is crucial in the fight against the HIV epidemic in Uganda and the rest of the world.

In line with the above, on 11th March 2015, Public Health Ambassadors Uganda (PHAU)​ in partnership with AHF Uganda Cares commemorated Post International Women and Girl’sDay 2015, at the YMCA in Wandegeya.  YMCA is a comprehensive institute the offers a wide variety of professional Diploma and Certificate Courses on both day and evening programs to both male and female students. However, YMCA Wandegeya in particular has a higher population of female students compared to the male students. It’s against this background that the International Women’s and Girl’s Day celebration was hosted at YMCA Wandegeya because young women and girls are more likely to get infected with HIV/AIDS, STIs due to the sexual network among students. Therefore, young women received health education on HIV prevention, care and management, free HIV counseling and testing service, free condoms and other youth friendly services. The edutainment, informative and creative arts approach; thematic poetry recitals, dance narratives, a flash mob from Public Health Ambassadors Uganda provided a supportive environment for the young people to come and receive HIV related information and other youth friendly services. The idea was to motivate young women and girls to play a role in the fight against HIV in Uganda by creating a structure of young people on whom to rely in the push for issues affecting young people with regard to HIV. A total of 700 students received HCT services, 2 students tested HIV positive and received referrals for further HIV management by AHF Uganda Cares. More so, over 10,000 condoms were distributed to the young women, girls and men too as they provide a dual protection against HIV, STIs and unplanned pregnancy.
