The AIDS care and community support organization-TACCOSO is a registered community based organization operating in the newly created districts of Buyende. It covers the communities around 10 landing sites in the district.
- There is a high rate of HIV infection due to the lifestyle and culture of fishermen. (Being exposed to daily cash yet they are not staying with their families, they drink alot of alcohol, use thier money to buy prostitutes)
- Their is a high rate of cross generational sex: mostly young women (below 18 yrs) tend to get married to older men due to low scale-up of girl child education.
Our organization is dedicated to educating the community on HIV prevention, advocate for girl child education and engaging positive young women in income generating activities after lifeskilss training.
