Health Alert-Uganda (HAU) is a not-for-profit organization founded on the 15th July, 2004 in the Gulu District of Northern Uganda. We work to promote the rights and participation of children infected and affected with HIV/AIDS in the community. This organization is registered with the National Non-governmental Organization Board Kampala (Reg.No S.5914/5378).
We link the community to existing health facilities in Health Centers 3 and 4 of the Gulu District, and also provide HCT, PMTCT, ARVs/ART, as well as care and treatment for children living with HIV (CLWHIV). The work of HAU spans across the districts of Gulu, Oyam, Kitgum, Amuru, Nwoya, Lamwo, and Pader.
Our team of staff members is experienced in community-based management of pediatric AIDS, especially in resource-limited settings. HAU functions as a service communications NGO with a program centered on three strategic objectives:
To be the NGO providing leadership in community based HIV/AIDS prevention, care and support services for children infection and affected with HIV/AIDS in Uganda
Health Alert-Uganda is committed to increasing access to quality community-based care and support services for children between the ages of (0-17) infected and affected with HIV/AIDS in Uganda. This is achieved through promotion of rights and child’s participation in home-based care, capacity building, community mobilization, advocacy, and research.
Health Alert Uganda values team work, innovation, integrity and strategic partnerships as critical attitudes and behaviors for achieving the mission of the (strategic plan) organization
