SHELL Uganda Ltd yesterday launched an AIDS campaign targeted at educating long-distance truck drivers on the dangers of the epidemic,
Shell country chairman Ivan Kyayonka said the campaign would be carried out jointly with UNAIDS, AMREF and the Amalgamated Transport & General Workers Union (ATGWU) in Uganda and Kenya.
â€œWe are increasing their awareness and making condoms available to them to guard against infection. We have chosen them as one of our key customer segments.
â€œAs a starting point we are focussing on the drivers of Shell contracted transporters. We shall later spread the initiative to other commercial drivers,â€ Kyayonka said.
