Uganda has enjoyed relative stability, has achieved economic reform, and has had many political and social advances since 1986, under President Yoweri Museveni. At 6.7 births per woman, Uganda’s persistent high fertility is one of the highest in sub-Saharan Africa and has remained virtually unchanged since 1995. The use of modern methods of contraception remains very low, at just 18 percent among married women (15 percent among all women), despite significant unmet need for spacing and limiting of pregnancies. UNAIDS estimates the number of people living with HIV/AIDS was 1.2 million in 2009. There was a decrease in prevalence among adults from an estimated 7.0 percent in 2001 to an estimated 6.5 percent in 2009, although the decline could be due to sampling error. Some antenatal clinics have reported increases in HIV prevalence.
