While we typically deliver an integrated programme, the below summarizes our approach under each our goal areas as guided the 5 years strategic plan 2018/2023.

Communicating the Disability and HIV/AIDS Paradox

The phenomena of disability and HIV/AIDS is not yet understood by a wide spectrum of stakeholders in the health professional, donor sector, HIV/AIDS service providers and PWDs themselves. MADIPHA is addressing the problem through research, detailed case analysis and marketing the issue through foras, media, and publications.

Social livelihood and Economic Empowerment

Disability, Poverty and HIV&AIDS in Uganda are impossible to separate. MADIPHA also focuses on improving the livelihoods of PWDs living with and affected by HIV&AIDS through empowerment in terms of building their skills and competencies in managing viable income generating activities (IGAs) as well as empowering PWD households to be able to meet their basic needs

Human Rights through Advocacy and Collaboration

MADIPHA focuses on creating awareness and advocating for implementation of policies and laws with a view on rights of persons with disability living HIV&AIDS and mainstreaming the rights based approach to all MADIPHA’s programs.
