The ministry of health says it is negotiating with donors regarding withdrawal of support for the HIV/AIDS program.

The permanent secretary at the ministry of health Dr. Asuman Lukwago says they are holding several consultative meetings with the donors to ensure that aid is not cut in the health sector.
