Members of the US Congress were on 15th August 2017 at Baylor’s COE Clininc to see first-hand, the impact of U.S. Government funding to Uganda’s health and HIV programming, particularly pediatric interventions; and appreciate in-country partnerships to advance global health. The COE alone has 7662 clients, of whom 3904 are children less than 15 years, enrolled into HIV care and treatment (ART). Besides the CoE located at the Mulago National Referral Hospital, Baylor provides services to 127 Ministry of Health facilities across the country positioning it as the major provider of HIV services in Uganda. It serves over 96,000 people living with HIV at supported health facilities, including 15,000 children below 15years ─ over 26% of the total population of children living with HIV. Baylor-Uganda also provides prevention, counseling, testing, and prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV services, and treats orphans and vulnerable children.
