Safe Boda Program

We have partnered with Peace Corps and the Uganda Red Cross to host “Safe Boda Programs” in Mukono and Nkokonjeru.

The program combines road safety, first aid, and HIV prevention and testing. Boda boda riders are considered a target population for HIV prevention by the Ugandan government and Boda boda accidents contribute significantly to emergency room admissions. Through this program, we are able to address both of these challenges. 75 drivers are now ambassadors of safe and healthy behaviours. Additionally, they are aware of their HIV statuses, contributing to The United States President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) 95-95-95 goals!
