The AIDS Support Organisation (TASO)

In 1986/7, while Uganda was recovering from a war with a new Government in place, a group of people, some of whom were infected while others had lost friends and family to AIDS, came together to form a support group which was then registered in 1991 as The AIDS Support Organisation (TASO).
