LGBT Ugandans: Our health depends on trans nominee in U.S.

Activists hope that Dr Levine will play a crucial role in focusing attention on and increasing support for left-behind LGBT populations in Uganda, who need improved access to health care services. She will be in a position to make a positive difference because the United States is the single biggest funder to Uganda’s national health budget. For 2021, despite the fact that the nation’s health services discriminate against LGBT persons, the U.S. is committing US $398 million in aid to Uganda through PEPFAR, the President’s Emergency Plan For AIDS Relief. The African Charter on Human and People’s Rights declares the importance of dignity for all people, but homophobic U.S. groups have been planting bigotry and hate in Africa by advocating harmful laws and policies, including Uganda’s now-annulled Anti-Homosexuality Act of 2014. LGBT activists want to reduce the unacceptable levels of HIV and Sexually Transmitted Infections in their communities, which for years have been ignored due to hostile public health policies and laws.
