One of the main projects
undertaken by Scouts in Uganda is supporting the Uganda National Expanded
Programme for Immunisation. UNICEF support an immunisation badge for
Scouts and Guides to help educate mothers on the need to take their
babies for immunisation. Further information on immunisation is provided
in this book as it is one of the two main areas which Unite will support.
The other area is AIDS
awareness and prevention. AIDS is a big problem in Uganda and the
government, with the help of UNICEF, are developing a project to help
young people find out about AIDS, how to prevent it and then pass
this information on to other young people.
