Improving HIV care among adolescents and young people in Western Uganda
By Masturah Chemisto
25 January 2022
As the tall young man walks towards the brick house at a homestead in Mugusu Town Council in Kabarole District, 12-year-old Harriet jumps up and greets him with a huge smile on her face.
“Eric teaches me how to swallow my medicine. When I go to the health centre, he takes my temperature, measures my weight, and checks if I am healthy and eating well,” says Harriet.
Eric Busingye, 20 years, is a young people and adolescent peer supporter (YAPS) programme member recruited in 2019. The YAPS Programme is an initiative of the Ministry of Health and partners including UNICEF, Global Fund with funding from SIDA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Eric is one of 112 peer supporters recruited under the YAPS Model implemented by Baylor-Uganda in seven districts in south western Uganda including Kabarole with the aim of improving the quality of care for adolescents and addressing problems of poor retention in HIV care and low viral load suppression among HIV positive young adults.
The peer supporters who themselves are living with HIV, are trained to support peers to improve their drug adherence and ensure the HIV virus is suppressed. The YAPS also link and refer young people for HIV services such as counseling, drug adherence, home visits and health education on HIV and other sexually transmitted infections.
When Eric became a YAPS member in 2019, he was linked to 23 adolescents who had unsuppressed viral loads. 21 of the 23 supported adolescents are now virally suppressed with copies of the virus in the blood less than 200 per mililitre.
“I counsel them and ensure that they go for care at the health facility. If they miss an appointment, I follow up, visit them at home to deliver their drugs and seek out other underlying issues causing failure in adherence. My work is to en
