Just a over a decade ago, Karamoja used to be a model region with the lowest HIV prevalence rates in Uganda despite the fact that it was neighboring the insecure northern region. According to the 2006 Uganda Health Demographic Survey, HIV/AIDS prevalence in Karamoja was at 3.5%.
But now that is history. The rates just escalated to 5.3%, from 3.5 % in 2006, compared to the national HIV/AIDS prevalence rate which stood at 7.3%. This is according to the 2014 National Housing and Population Report.
