Jacquelyne Alesi

I am a 33-year-old, self-driven, committed young woman openly living with HIV and passionate about working with young people living with HIV. I have contributed actively to the HIV response nationally, regionally and within local communities and Globally.

My extensive work with young people living with HIV is in various capacities, including that of being the Executive Director of Uganda Network of Young People Living with HIV/ AIDS, but stepped down to let another young person lead.

I am currently the founder and Team Leader of The Jacquelyne Ssozi Foundation whose mission is to provide a conducive environment for the vulnerable people especially Adolescent Girls and Young Women (AGYW) and children living with and affected by HIV including those with disabilities in our communities to live a better and healthy life.
