COTAA (COMMUNITY TOGETHER AGAINST AIDS)A community HIV/AIDS Project

Goal : To relieve the suffering of those infected and affected by HIV/AIDS and reduce the pandemic by 4% by the year 2008.

One reason AIDS has remained slippery and tricky is the way it is handled and the stigma that goes with it. The Hospitals and health centers for testing and treatment of HIV/ AIDS are very limited. So in communities like Kamwenge district, where there is no single hospital, women and the youth may not afford the transport fare needed to travel to the hospital.
