Dr. Grace Nambatya, the Director of Natural Chemotherapeutics Research Institute addressing the women groups in Kiwanda, Mityana

The Natural Chemotherapeutic Research Institute – Ministry of Health partnered with MAMAH to study the efficacy of the Oyster mushroom in controlling opportunistic infections among people living with HIV/AIDS. The study started during the last quarter of 2014 and is still on-going.

 

Groups of People Living with HIV/AIDS under MAMAH were mobilized and sensitized to participate in this program. They are trained on how to grow oyster mushrooms, and the health benefits arising from its regular consumption. MAMAH supplies them with mushroom seeds so as to enable them grow mushrooms within their homes.

The study targets groups of people living with HIV/AIDS in Busimbi sub-county, Mityana district. Such groups include women groups – who form the majority, a group of children living with HIV/AIDS – who stay with foster mothers in the community (supported by NIFAED) and a group of men living with HIV/AIDS known as ‘men inclusive’.
