According to the article, Uganda has been widely praised for its effective AIDS policy, which saw condom use promoted and disease rates slashed from over 15 percent in the early 1990’s to less then half, at around 6 percent.One of the reasons for the decrease in disease rates is through the use of targeted educational campaigns that remind people to take their medication.
