HIV/AIDS is not the end of the world – MC Kats

Over the last two years, he’s actively and passionately spoken about the epidemic and continues to encourage people living with HIV to adhere to their medication and stay safe. His health status has not put him down; he continues to live his life normally, a decision that earned him the recognition and more admiration of his fans.

“My fight against HIV stigma has inspired thousands and only makes me stronger and ready for the next impact as a target to inspire not only the countable but a generation,” said MC Kats.

The Uganda Aids Commission organized the 3-day event in partnership with the Ministry of Health, Research Academia and Professionals Self-Coordinating Entity, and United Nations.
