Linking HIV Care and Management of Chronic Non-Communicable Diseases: Experiences from Buikwe District, Uganda
In the past three decades, the burden of chronic conditions has grown and continues to place increasing stress on the health care system, individuals and communities in Uganda (Uganda HSSIP III). Health systems in most developing nations are not well prepared to manage patients with chronic conditions because they have been set up to diagnose and manage acute diseases. Such systems need a redesign to become responsive to the growing needs of people with chronic conditions. The objective is to demonstrate how to provide effective care to people with chronic conditions.
