Uganda

Uganda has a history of conflict and violence with thousands killed under the rule of Idi Amin and attacks by the rebel group known as the Lord’s Resistance Army. While Uganda has made an effort to reduce the prevalence of HIV/AIDS, it continues to be a serious issue and many children have been orphaned due to this disease. These issues have hindered progress and development in Uganda, and many people in Uganda continue to experience extreme poverty.
