However some sections of the anti-AIDS campaign have blamed the west for imposing their own ways of fighting HIV/AIDS on Uganda. "We are losing the war against HIV/AIDS," Pastor Martin Ssempa says.
A renown anti-gay activist Ssempa accuses UNAIDS of "forcing us to turn away from our original ABC strategy in favour of the universal access.'
"Universal access puts emphasis on condoms, treatment and a cottage industry of rights, like gay rights, stigma rights. It minimises the role of prevention through behavioural change, abstinence and faithfulness," Ssempa said.
He laments that AIDS has become a big business with most AIDS activists out to make money. "We used to say AIDS kills but now when you say AIDS kills, they say you are creating stigma.
We have a big conflict between the western approach based on human rights against Uganda's approach which was based on prevention (the social vaccine). We have abandoned behavioural change. People are no longer afraid of HIV/AIDS," Ssempa says.
The only thing I need to add is that Ssempa is an MPH (It does mean Masters in Public Health?) and a PhD (and that is Doctor of Philosophy)
