UGANDA yesterday marked World AIDS Day with messages urging men to go for voluntary counselling and testing services. 

Health minister Dr. Stephen Mallinga noted that voluntary testing and counselling is an effective strategy to access preventive and care services. 

World AIDS Day was adopted in 1988. It is commemorated every December 1 to raise awareness about the pandemic that has killed more than 25 million people world-wide since it was first discovered 30 years ago.
