Icebreakers Uganda Clinic
Why we started the Clinic
In May 2012, Icebreakers Uganda opened the first LGBT clinic in Uganda; it was due to widespread homophobia and the very unfriendly services that LGBT people were getting from health service providers. This risked their lives because they had problems accessing LGBT friendly health services. Being a Key population/marginalized group, the risks of HIV and other STIs were and are still high.
We opened the ICEBREAKERS CLINIC to cater for sexual minority groups so as to avail accessible, free and friendly health services.
