ECHO Sessions

As part of the wider program, Department of Defense HIV/AIDS Prevention Program (DHAPP) Under U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief/ Defense Health Agency DHAPP/Department of Defense HIV/AIDS Prevention Program, which is led by URC with IDI as a sub-recipient, the virtual ECHO program was launched on 20th January 2022. The wider aim of the program is to reduce new HIV infections among the Ugandan military population and communities surrounding military bases through strengthening the UPDF DHIV institutional capacity and health worker competencies in UPDF health facilities.

Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) uses videoconferencing to connect to health workers with a multi-disciplinary team of experts of knowledge to build their capacity for delivery of best-practice care. On this page, we present the case studies discussed by various experts from the UPDF, IDI and URC during the Virtual sessions held.
