Test for HIV, soldiers urged
GULU-UPDF soldiers have been urged to establish their sero statuses to enable them plan for the future. The armyâ€™s 4th Division operation and training officer, Col. Sam Kiwanuka, explained that it is good for someone to know his sero status so as to get HIV/AIDS treatment early. He was speaking at the closure of a workshop on child rights at the division headquarters on Monday. â€œI want all the soldiers in the 4th division to go for voluntary HIV/AIDS counselling and testing. There are free ARVs for people living with AIDS in Gulu Military Hospital," Kiwanuka said.
