The 2021 edition of the Kabaka Birthday Run has been officially launched. It was announced during a press conference that was held Bulange-Mengo, Buganda Kingdom Headquarters on Thursday.
This year’s run will be held under the theme “Men against HIV/AIDS to save the girl child” with the aim of encouraging men to take the lead in the fight against HIV/ AIDS by getting tested, treated, and ultimately protecting girls and women against infection.
Speaking at the launch, the Katikiro of Buganda Kingdom Owek. Charles Peter Mayiga, said that the campaign against HIV requires behavioral change and sharing of key information.
“The biggest weapon we need in this fight is information, information based on research that will uphold the UNAIDS mission to eliminate the virus spread by 2030, and to achieve this we must embark on sensitization drives like what we do through initiatives like the Kabaka Birthday Run.” He said.
Also at the same event, the official Kabaka Birthday Run kits were also unveiled. The kits will be available at select points at UGX 15,000.
The run scheduled to take place on Sunday, 28th November 2021 will be held virtually and flagged off by Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II.
The Kabaka Birthday Run is sponsored by Airtel Uganda and dfcu Bank among others.
