Acerca de

The Action Group for Health, Human Rights, and HIV/AIDS (AGHA) is a Ugandan NGO founded in 2003 to mobilize health professionals and health consumers to address issues of human rights as they relate to health with a specific focus on HIV/AIDS. AGHA brings together doctors, nurses and other professionals with NGOs interested in promoting human rights in the health sector to create local and national networks dedicated to health advocacy.

AGHA fulfills its organizational goals through four interconnected objectives: • Training and educating health providers and the communities they serve on global health advocacy and the relationship between health and human rights; • Conducting advocacy and media publicity for observation of human rights; • Researching aspects of human rights violations that impair health; and • Networking and collaborating with other human rights organizations to advocate for human rights-based health policies and programs.

AGHA implements its interventions through the following program areas: – Health Financing Campaign: coordinating the effort to increase Uganda’s national healthcare budget and promoting transparency and accountability in the health sector. – Health Rights Leadership Campaign: Training health workers to be human rights advocates. – Health Workforce Campaign: Improve the education, quality and working conditions of the health workforce. – Anti-Stigma and Discrimination Campaign: Training healthcare workers to prevent and combat stigmatization and discrimination in healthcare settings
