MUKONO district health sector were last week shocked by the rapid increment of number of People that get affected with HIV/AIDS by 30% every week.
According to Assistant district health officer Isaac Ddumba says that their Survey show that Mukono is fore fronting HIV/AIDS spread due to presence of high population, prostitution exercises carried out and youth be-honeying sugar Mammies.
Ddumba adds “this is worryingly and terrible moment for us to believe this issue drags us into shock and I believe it might have been splashed by ignorance of I don’t care people”.
According to current report and survey carried by a team of district health officials that is yet to be released indicates that HIV/AIDS affected scheme has progressed by 18% alongside islands of Koome Sub county and 14% in Mukono Municipality per weekly basis respectively.
The survey reveals that fishermen in fishing camps always share women which have greatly led to rapid spread of HIV/AIDs in fishing communities and prostitution is too high in fishing landing sites especially in Katosi among others.
However Sr. Jane Nakafeero an Administrator of Naggalama Hospital the only in Mukono argued Government to turn up positively in respect of private owned hospitals for effective health service delivery.
She says “the progress of HIV/AIDS victims’ projection is 4600 People weekly, contributing to a catchment number of 29200 persons that are attended to for health service monthly within Mukono and neighboring Areas, yet Government aid only 8% quarterly.
