Our Background

IPIA was formed by energetic individuals who were passionate about the vulnerable group in community. These combined their different fields of expertise in social work to form the community board organization. Initially they scanned the environment to identify the marginalized group and trace the pressing needs that they sought to address zeroing on the key population as the marginalized group that was found to be infected and affected.

It was upon these challenges faced that the CBO was formed with the purpose of linking the key population to access both health and legal services as was to vulnerable and marginalized group in the society that was infected and affected.
It’s a community based organization registered and operating in the rural areas of southern and central Uganda where most of them are discriminated of what they are. Our main focus is on the sex workers and the men who have sex with men
