There is one study being conducted by one my best colleagues here in Mbarara University of Science and Technology (MUST) -Dr. Okello Samson- and is likely to yield interesting results. He is looking at Peripheral Arterial Disease among Diabetic patients in Outpatient clinic at MUST Hospital. Ofcourse, People Living with HIV/AIDS are not excluded. Following the results from this study would provide a way to tackle this problem I guess.
Since there is need to focus on advocacy,communication and social mobilization for NCDs, Am a public health advocate and its clear that HIV/AIDS is one of the triggers leading to NCDs. There is need for an integrated comprehensive information package that would look at NCDs and HIV/AIDS, here developing a collaborative communications strategy is pertinent.
