  • Revival and growth from 1986 onward – widespread prayer movements, strong evangelical presence in the Church of Uganda and renewal movements in the Catholic Church. These make Uganda one of the most truly Christian nations in the world, with church attendance high and public prayer common, even in government and judicial buildings.
  • Uganda is the first country in the world with a massive AIDS problem to halve and even reduce the numbers of the afflicted.  According to http://www.avert.org the HIV/AIDS prevalence rate dropped from a high of 29% in 1986 to currently 6.5% in urban areas.  The government’s ABC prevention campaign was partly responsible for the decline in prevalence.  Both government and churches faced up to the terrible calamity and have successfully worked to achieve this reduction.
