   WHAT WE STAND FOR
"A society where access to health care, support and treatment is a reality for all Ugandans & where people living with or affected by HIV/AIDS & other diseases are empowered to claim and defend their rights".
 
Welcome to HAG!
Stop descrimination against young people living with HIV&AIDS
 

Health Rights Action Group (HAG)is a National Civil Society Organization founded in 2001. It evolved out of a group called the Women’s Treatment Action Group (WTAG) which was originally formed by a number of women living with HIV&AIDS to advocate for access to healthcare and treatment, particularly anti-retroviral treatment (ART), which was just starting to become available in Uganda at that time. 

As an organization, HAG has grown and expanded its work to include;

- conducting research studies on the human rights and information needs of People living with HIV&AIDS (PLHIV);
- carrying out sensitizations on behaviour change;
- working with the private sector to initiate sector specific polices to address   HIV&AIDS in the work place;
- implementing National campaigns on access to treatment and positive living;
- training community human rights monitors to act as watchdogs against human   rights violations and promotion of maternal,
- sexual and reproductive health and rights as well as providing legal counseling,
- mediation  and referrals in communities.
