the role of counselling in community support for HIV/AIDS in Uganda.
HIV/AIDS counselling in medical related programmes focuses upon pre-and post-test counselling.
The MRC programme in rural Uganda, a high prevalence area, began with pre-and post-test counselling, but as it was a community based programme this was not found to be adequate.
As the programme developed, the counselling service became a way of strengthening the community to withstand the effects of HIV/AIDS.
The paper describes the de-centralization of the counselling programme from a medical centre to community centres.
To monitor and evaluate the programme a set of quantitative and qualitative indicators were developed, these are introduced and discussed.
