However, such campaigns have so far failed to galvanize Ugandan youth.
In the words of one female student, “no one is going to tell me not to see a sugar daddy, when that is what makes me happy.” It is tempting to dismiss such statements as youthful impertinence, but this simple declaration comprises complex desires for romance, security, and the promises of a “modern” life.
Young women’s values and sentiments, like those expressed above, undergird the latest developments in Uganda’s HIV transmission patterns.
As PEPFAR continues to fund expansive HIV prevention programs in Uganda and surrounding countries—in many cases targeting youth—it behooves us to take seriously these young people’s assertions.
UNAIDS points to cross-generational sexual relationships, commonly referred to as “sugar daddy” relationships, as a significant driver of intergenerational HIV transmission in sub-Saharan Africa.
These relationships run rampant on college campuses across Uganda, and other African nations.
