Most Ugandan women – living in a context marked by poverty, low status and poor reproductive health conditions - are extremely vulnerable to HIV/AIDS. In a country were polygamy is (still) common practice, where property rights of women are poorly protected, where early marriage is culturally accepted, HIV/AIDS can hardly be effectively addressed as long as the underlying causes of gender inequality and poverty are not sufficiently taken into account. The Total Fertility Rate has remained persistently high, with each woman having on average 7 children during her reproductive age.
