John Magufuli, cialis 40mg http://dejanmilutinovic.com/wp-content/plugins/unyson/framework/extensions/shortcodes/shortcodes/button/static.php the newly elected Tanzanian president and his illustrious clampdown on wasteful government spending it appears, viagra 100mg is not only becoming a social media sensation, sildenafil but directly impacting on her neighboring countries’ planning, Uganda not spared.

Upon being elected President, Magufuli introduced a number of radical government cost-cutting measures that saw billions of Tanzanian shillings scraped and redirected to other development and social service programs.

Perhaps inspired by the population’s support and praises to his counterpart, President Yoweri Museveni who is campaigning to retain office for the fifth time is aggressively raking funds to support local communities.

Museveni has astronomically multiplied the budgets for three social development funds which have come to be known as the Wanainchi (Citizens’) Funds.

Through his presidential campaigns for the 2016 general elections, Museveni is preaching intensely about increasing funding for Youth Livelihood Program, NAADS and the Microfinance Fund.

The president also recently added the fourth one; the Women`s Fund that is expected to start in the next financial year 2016/2017.

The Youth Livelihood Program (YLP) was introduced two years ago by president Museveni and has been allocated a uniform Shs 28.5bn in the last two financial years of 2014/2015 and 2015/2016.

The program under the ministry of Gender Labor and Social Development is aimed at equipping youths in the age bracket of 18 to 30 years with skills and startup capital to reduce the high unemployment rate among the youths.

While in Karamoja the president announced that come next financial year, the YLP is going to be apportioned Shs 234billion.

The Microfinance Support Centre Limited (MSC) that was established in 2001 is a government owned company and one of the agencies driving the “Prosperity for All” program. The MSC purposely focuses on rural economic transformation through creation of jobs and increase in the household incomes.

Since its inception in terms of financing, the MSC has been getting averagely Shs 10bn annually and in this financial year 2015/2016 it was given Shs 14bn.

Museveni however is multiplying this figure more than twelvefold to Shs 180bn which has been earmarked the company’s 2016/2017 budget.

The National Agricultural Advisory Services (NAADs) is another Wanaichi fund aimed at promoting commercial production in the sector that directly and indirectly employs over 80 percent of the population.

In this financial year 2015/2016, NAADs that was temporarily banned got only Shs 183bn.

In the coming financial year as announced by Museveni and also included in the NRM manifesto, NAADs is going to get Shs 1000bn.

The president also announced the introduction of Women Funds that just like YLP is going to get Shs 234bn.

The four Wanainchi funds alone at Shs 1,648 bn are much bigger than the overall Social Developments programs for this financial year.

In the 2015/2016 budget, social development funds with the exception of NAADs were given Shs 93,369,745,652 of the total budget of Shs 23,972,251,058,047.

The First Lady and Minister for Karamoja Affairs, hospital http://cfbtoman.com/wp-includes/class-wp-text-diff-renderer-table.php Janet Kataha Museveni on Friday launched the elimination of mother to child transmission of HIV/AIDS (EMTCT) campaign in the South- western region of Uganda with a strong call to refocus on the ABC strategy as the primary HIV prevention intervention.

“We need and must refocus our primary prevention interventions which are premised on the ABC. We preached ABC without any apology and it made great impact on reducing the HIV/AIDS infections. We must now go back to talking about the ABC for which Uganda is well known, about it ” she said.

The First Lady, who is Uganda’s advocacy champion for the Elimination of mother to child transmission, was addressing EMTCT stakeholders from the 14 Districts in South-Western Uganda during a Consultative meeting she hosted at her country home in Rwakitura.

Janet Museveni emphasized the importance of a synergistic  implementation of the structural, behavioral and biomedical interventions including HIV counseling and testing (HCT); Elimination of Mother to Child Transmission (EMTCT), Safe Male Circumcision, STD

She said that although the focus of the EMTCT campaigns across the country has been on elimination of mother to child transmission, they have also been used to raise awareness and knowledge on HIV prevention and control across the general population and for the groups that are disproportionately affected by the epidemic.

“We want to address the HIV/AIDS epidemic in general as we also focus on the vulnerable children who get infected from their mothers,” Mrs. Museveni said.

According to the AIDS Indicator Survey that was conducted in 2011, the HIV prevalence in the Country stands at 7.3 percent.

The epidemic is higher among women at 8.2 percent compared to men at 6.1 percent.

The Survey also indicates that in the South Western Region of Uganda, HIV prevalence is higher than the national average; it stands at 8.0 percent (women 9.0 percent, men 6.6 percent).

“This must worry all of us. We must address this big burden of HIV in the region,” Janet Museveni said.

The First Lady was concerned that the country continues to experience many new HIV infections saying that though it is gratifying that new infections have reduced from 147,000 in 2011 to 99,000 in 2014, this is still a big number.

Janet Museveni called upon the women, men and families to fully utilize services for EMTCT.

She encouraged pregnant women to always attend ANC for all four required times during pregnancy. She also asked HIV infected mothers already enrolled on the EMTCT program to remain in care and take their medicine all the time.

She also implored the families to take charge of their primary responsibility of guiding the young in order to address the teenage pregnancy problem.
