iknow public health initiatives

7.6% of Ugandans are living with HIV And only 55% have been ever tested. Since the first concert in 2014, we have tested over 7,500 Ugandans for HIV. We have also provided a vast array of other health services related to men's and women's reproductive health.

Year-Round emphasis

The outreach can't end with a test. We strive not only to empower Ugandans with the knowledge of their status, but the iKnow Concert Series strives to connect the members of the community with ongoing services, 365 days a year. In addition to hosting monthly, comprehensive health care clinics at Entusi Resort and Retreat Center on Lake Bunyonyi, We have been able to acheive this by building strong partnerships with organizations on the ground in Uganda. Reproductive Health Uganda, AIDS Information Center, Marie Stopes International, Kigezi Healthcare Foundation and Kabale Regional Hospital are all part of our vast network of partners who help us to provide Ugandans with access to health services year round.

About iknow

 
 
IT ALL STARTED IN 2009... The Global Livingston Institute started taking American scholars and community leaders to Uganda. Not to fix anything, but to have conversations, to understand communities, to cross borders of every sort, to give everyone a seat at the table in order to build partnerships. In 2014, with Reach a Hand Uganda, Ugandan and American musicians, doctors, students, and community leaders came together to ACT. Together, we began hosting the largest free music festival in Uganda focused on HIV awareness, culture sharing and economic development. In year 4 we're adding a third city and will continue to add to the 100 performers, 7,500 HIV tests that have been administered and 38,000 concertgoers who have attended.
