About MPWN

Mulago Positive Women's Network (MPWN) is a network which was started in January 2004, focusing on the most vunerable people in the local community in Kampala, Uganda with a vision of bringing back hope to the lives of women and children who are infected and affected by HIV/AIDS.

Conscious that many HIV positive women face different challenges of different dimensions, women in TASO Mulago realized that they could do a lot to share with and support each other in order to cope with the impact of HIV/AIDS in their lives.

This is a page to their ingenuity, resilience and determination to survive and to thrive in the midst of many obstacles by one who knows them. I hope that you will find this page enlightening, encouraging and emboldening.

The interests of the women of the Mulago Positive Women's Network (MPWN) are the same as anyone else's - taking proper care of their familes and providing for the future of their children.

The women of the MPWN are all HIV positive and receive their ARV's (antiretroviral medications) from international donors. They also receive additional support services though TASO (The AIDS Support Organization - www.tasouganda.org) at Mulago Hospital, the biggest hospital in Uganda's capitol, Kampala.

These women are now challenged by another life concern: how to provide for themselves and their families. Many of the members of the MPWN either have been stigmatized out of their former employment positions or have never been employed before.

Some of the women have been widowed by HIV/AIDS and now must find a way to provide for their children. The women have started making and selling native Ugandan craft items and selling them to tourists and others (mainly supporters of the international movement to make AIDS and extreme poverty history) for additional income.

About Women Of Uganda Network
