November 23, 2017

Over the recent few weeks, The Uganda Network of Young People Living with HIV (UNYPA) has carried out a process of changing leadership. As a result, Mr. Nicholas Niwagaba is newly appointed as Executive Director.



Nicholas is a very inspiring young advocate who has demonstrated both excellent leadership and organizing skills. He is respected by his peers and has a calm, powerful, ambitious and thoughtful way of speaking up on sensitive and complex issues around gender, sexuality, sex and HIV, on behalf of young people living with HIV in Uganda.

Since February 2014, He has been working with Uganda Network of Young People Living with HIV/AIDS (UNYPA) as a project officer and until recently, as programs Director and a member of the communities' delegation to the Global Fund to fight AIDS, TB & Malaria Board.

At Aidsfonds we congratulate Nicholas with this promising step forward.
We are very proud and wish him the best of luck in his new position. It has always been a pleasure working together with Nicholas and UNYPA and we are much looking forward to a continued succesful collaboration.
