History and origins of AMICAALL in Africa

The Alliance of Mayors and Municipal Leaders’ Initiative for Community Action on AIDS at the Local Level (AMICAALL) is an association of African Mayors and other Urban Leaders formed to support sustainable solutions to the HIV and AIDS epidemic in African Cities and Municipalities. A coordination secretariat was set up in Windhoek, Namibia to support establishment of autonomous AMICAALL Chapters in all African Countries and coordinate mutual support, Information sharing, networking and advocacy.

History and origins of AMICAALL in Africa

Subscribing to AMICAALL Africa, AMICAALL Uganda Chapter was launched on 28th November 2000 at the Mayors’ Parlour when Ugandan Mayors, under the leadership of Kampala Capital City signed the Kampala Declaration. The chapter has since registered and operated as a National Non-Government Organization bringing together Mayors and other urban leaders from the City, Municipalities and Town Councils across the country.

AMICAALL Uganda chapter

AMICAALL Uganda Programme acknowledges the unique challenges facing populations in the urban and peri-urban areas due to unique livelihood situations and works through the existing Local Government systems and structures to support design and delivery of tailored HIV and AIDS prevention, care and support interventions.

Reviewed Strategic Scope and Programme Mandate

During the review of AMICAALL Uganda Strategic Plan in 2015, it was realized that the global development agenda is changing with the shift from the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Accordingly, the National Development Plan II is aligned to this global shift with the AIDS response moving from isolation (MDG 6) to working towards integrated Health and elimination of all epidemics by 2030 (in SDG 3). The Vision 2040 recognizes the impending development challenges emanating from the rapidly growing urbanization and demographics.


Leveraging on its 16 years experience, achievements and structures, AMICAALL Uganda’s Strategic focus has been reviewed. The organization will continue to strengthen urban leadership and governance for effective delivery of services to urban populations. However, the scope of its programme has been expanded to address other urban health challenges relating to HIV&AIDS, Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights (SRH/R), Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) and Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs)
