SURFACE is a Non-Profit, Non-Govermental, Non-descriminative HIV/AIDS support Organisation established in 2003 and based in Gulu district, in the northern part of uganda. The organisation's goal is to support families affected by aids/hiv through capacity enhancement. This can be achieved through disseminate HIV/AIDS information in order to promote, inform and support appropriate responses to the epidemic in the fields of HIV prevention, care, long-term planning and coping with the impact

Situation in Gulu District of Northern Uganda

Gulu District in Northern Uganda comprises a population of 467,523 (National census 2002). This is close to 50% of the entire population in the Acholi sub region. Though the rest of Uganda experienced commendable economic progress during the NRM tenure, the Acholi sub region continued to lag far behind in all aspects due to the 17 year old rebellion. The result of this age-old insurgency is that the socio-economic infrastructure is completely destroyed. Close to one million persons have been displaced to live in Internally Displace Peoples (IDP) camps. The people in IDPCs have diminished capacity to support themselves, and depend on external support from UN-WFP and other Humanitarian agencies. The moral breakdown due to this social disruption is unspeakable, marked by high levels of alcohol consumption, sexual abuse, early marriages and defilement, STD and high potential risks of HIV/AIDS infection.
