Uganda Network of AIDS Service Organizations (UNASO) was founded in 1996. It is a network organization that exists to provide coordination, representation and networking among civil society AIDS Service Organizations (ASOs) for enhanced quality HIV and AIDS service delivery.
UNASO undertakes this through facilitating CSO participation in constructive dialogue, and engagement of duty bearers in national and decentralized HIV & AIDS response; fostering collaboration, networking, and strategic partnership among CSOs for a harmonized HIV &AIDS response at national and decentralized levels; and providing platforms for exchange and sharing of strategic information and experiences among CSOs engaged in HIV/AIDS response.
It also exists to provide technical assistance to CSOs in programming for HIV and AIDS. UNASO membership strength to date is over 2000 organizations and has facilitated the establishment of 50 district networks in the country.
