Over a decade ago, Botswana had the highest known rate of HIV/AIDS infection in the world. Today, the remarkable response to the epidemic is reflected in having one of Africa’s most successful and far-reaching programs for bringing about positive results.

When URC began working in Botswana in 2008, our team supported the HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment efforts already taking shape across the nation. Partnering with the Ministry of Health, Department of HIV/AIDS Prevention and Care, URC is working to improve the quality and use of HIV prevention and care services and strengthen the delivery of routine HIV-testing strategies.

URC carries on with this work and since then have expanded the scope of our work in Botswana to include maternal, newborn, and child health, tuberculosis, reproductive health and family planning, food and nutrition, and vulnerable children and families.
