Dear Uganda AIDS Commission,

Re: Expression of interest for partnership with Uganda AIDS Commission

Communication for Health Uganda (C4HU) was established in 2015 as Community Based Organisation, non- profit making, non-political, and non-denominational development organization working to improve on health of the poor and vulnerable communities in Hoima District. It was registered with the Directorate of Gender and Community Development of Hoima District Local Government on 15/07/2015 (Certificate No. CDWG 060/15) and will soon be alleviated to an NGO status.

We are beginning to implement our Five Year Strategic Plan (2018 – 2023) named “Turning Ideas into Action” (available on request). The strategic Plan targets working with MARPs and gives a road map and direction to be achieved. It has been developed through consultation and community dialogues with different Civil Society Organisation (NGOs/CBOs) and stakeholders in the community. We are dedicated to helping MARPs realise their right to health as a fundamental aspect of life. Our programme thematic areas include: HIV/AIDS Prevention among MARPs and other highly mobile groups, Reproductive health, Gender Based Violence (GBV), OVCs support, Child Protection, Economic Empowerment Programme (VSLA), Malaria Prevention, Livelihoods and Food Security (Agriculture), Nutrition, Education (Girl Child Education), Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), Human Rights and Good Governance, participatory policy research, innovation and policy, advocacy and engagement.

The purpose of this letter is to implore your office to support us in our programme key thematic areas during implementation of activities particularly MARPs through fundraising and resource mobilization that will help us to implement Social Behaviour Change Communication (SBCC) interventions in the target areas. Our approach uses SBCC to enable individuals, families, communities, and societies to improve their quality of life. We shall work closely with community structures such as VHTs, Health facilities and LCs and other stakeholders in implementing health interventions. As the country grapples with HIV/AIDS pandemic, we believe this is one area of partnership in helping MARPs access condoms and reduce HIV/AIDS prevalence in the region. We already have a proposal ready for funding in case you request for it.

Your positive response to this request will be highly appreciated by the staff and management.

Thank You for your cooperation.

Yours faithfully,
