- 02-24-04 Uganda Massacre a Reminder (BBC News)

- African Culture (LifeinAfrica.com)
"The Life in Africa Foundation was founded in Uganda in 1999, in order to harness the power of the Internet to foster an increased international understanding of Africa and African people, and to make a lasting impact - through supporting microfinance in Africa - on the lives of ordinary African people who face extraordinary life challenges every single day." 2-01
- Promoting an "Especially Bad War" (CBS News - Rooney)
"The word makes it sound as though we're just a few countries short of having the whole world on our side, and that isn't true. Most of the world is against us. The Administration says 49 countries are part of the coalition. I see that Eritrea, Uganda and Iceland are on our side."
"The fact is, though, we're in this thing with the British, who have 45,000 soldiers there, and the Australians, who have 2,000. That's it. The other 46 wish us well or let us fly bombers over their country. Big deal."
"We've practically bribed some of them. We offered Turkey $15 billion to let our troops go through there but they refused. President Bush won't be sending the president of Turkey anything for his birthday this year." 4-03

"The newly established international criminal court risks being 'fatally damaged' by demands that it cancel its first ever war crimes indictment because it is an obstacle to ending Uganda's 20-year civil war." 01-07
- -12-22-07 When Motherhood Gets You Jail Time (Time.com)
"Unwed and on welfare, Griffin, 28, walked into a Wisconsin court last May with one goal: She wanted to keep the man she says beat her throughout her pregnancy from winning joint custody of their son. Unwilling to listen to her own attorney, Griffin conducted her own clumsy, meandering cross-examination of the child's father, Ugandan citizen Matthew Sebuliba, and failed to convince the judge that the abuse had really occurred. Instead, she tried the patience of Judge Michael D. Guolee, who chided her for spurning Sebuliba, whom he called a good catch. 'We are going to force the mother to allow the father to be a father,' he said. 'Period. And if she doesn't, I will take the child away from you and give it to the father unless you totally cooperate.' " 12-07
- -05-10-10 AIDS Battle Is Being Lost (New York Times)
"Uganda is the first and most obvious example of how the war on global AIDS is falling apart."
"The last decade has been what some doctors call a “golden window” for treatment. Drugs that once cost $12,000 a year fell to less than $100, and the world was willing to pay."
"In Uganda, where fewer than 10,000 were on drugs a decade ago, nearly 200,000 now are, largely as a result of American generosity. But the golden window is closing." 05-10
- -03-11-12 Editorial: Is Kony 2012 a Solution? (CNN News)
"Invisible Children's campaign is a well-packaged call to leave the state of affairs [in Uganda] untouched; their message seems so modern because their tools are. The point made is conformist: Fight violence with violence, dismiss intricate steps of social change and make a narrow ideology mass-compatible by having millions of unquestioning people raise their fists in support. For the U.S., Europe and other generally comfortable corners of the world, this is a worrying picture of a mass culture that easily falls for propaganda." 03-12
- -03-11-12 Editorial: Is Joseph Kony a Current Threat? (CNN News)
"And in a Foreign Policy blog post, journalist Michael Wilkerson wrote: 'But let's get two things straight: 1) Joseph Kony is not in Uganda and hasn't been for 6 years; 2) the LRA now numbers at most in the hundreds.' " 03-12
- Motivating Women to Use Cleaner, More Efficient Stoves (TheWorld.org)
"Getting individuals to change their behavior for the good of the planet can be a hard sell. Whether it’s encouraging homeowners to use compact fluorescent bulbs or convincing drivers to buy hybrid cars, environmentalists have learned that the best approach is often an appeal to self-interest. That’s the tactic an environmental group in Africa is using to persuade women to change the way they cook. Ari Daniel Shapiro of our partner program NOVA has the story from Uganda." 08-12

- Method to Prevent AIDS Under Study (New York Times)
"The most striking studies suggest that men can lower their own risk of infection by roughly two-thirds, and that infected men can reduce the odds of transmitting the virus to their partners by about 30 percent, simply by undergoing circumcision. Research suggests that the cells on the underside of the foreskin are prime targets for the virus and that tears and abrasions in the foreskin can invite the infection."
"But World Health Organization experts say it would be premature to recommend circumcision until results come in from two randomized controlled trials involving nearly 8,000 people in Kenya and Uganda. Preliminary results could be released by late June." 04-06
- Circumcision Pros and Cons (U.S. News)
"Well, a study of 5,000 initially uncircumcised Ugandan men in this week's New England Journal of Medicine found that once the men underwent circumcision, their rate acquiring herpes virus infection plunged by 28 percent and they were 35 percent less likely to get infected with human papillomavirus (HPV), which is responsible for genital warts and, in women, cervical cancer."
"Previous research has shown that circumcision reduces infection with the HIV virus by 60 percent—although other studies have shown no difference in rates of certain sexually transmitted diseases between circumcised and uncircumcised men." 04-09
