Youth Alive Uganda was started in 1993 by a group of youth under the guidance of Sr. Dr. Miriam Duggan in Kamwokya, a Kampala suburb which was severely affected by a diversity of social and health problems, chief among them HIV&AIDS. The group realized that the most infected and affected were youth; mainly adolescents and young adults. In response, a youth friendly HIV prevention strategy was designed resulting in the foundation of YAU. Over the past past years we have integrated youth programs to include health, livelihoods, human rights and skills development to address the evolving youth needs. We are currently working in 43 districts
