A successful media advocacy workshop was held in June by Uganda’s National WASH Coalition, which is hosted by the National Sanitation Working Group (NSWG). National Coordinator Julian Kyomuhangi organised the Kampala event, which was part of the coalition’s activities planned for the International Year for Sanitation.

According to Ms. Kyomuhangi, the workshop informed and educated a wide variety of television, print and radio journalists and members of the National Community of Women Living with HIV and AIDS (NACWOLA).The workshop examined the importance of WASH-related issues for the people living with HIV/AIDS and their care givers. It also aimed to stimulate engagement by the mass media as advocates of WASH and to report more on the importance of WASH issues as they relate to HIV/AIDS.
