The Uganda HIV/AIDS Services Project (UHSP) was a USAID-funded project which built on the successes of the Uganda Program for Human and Holistic Development (UPHOLD) in the areas of HIV counseling, testing, and palliative care. UHSP provided financial and technical support to civil society organizations (CSOs) as implementing partners who deliver services to Ugandans in 30 districts. In the first year UHSP worked with 12 CSOs and in the second year the number was reduced to five CSOs. Though an independent project, UHSP was initially nested within the auspices of UPHOLD and leveraged the already existing infrastructure and relationships through its other projects in Uganda and experience in working in the HIV and AIDS sector in the country.
