Milly Katana, veteran HIV activist and Uganda country director for the International HIV/AIDS Alliance, said much more progress needs to be made. "This has been a long way and a long fight," Katana told IRIN. "I am looking forward to a day when there will be no one - infant, adolescent, or adult - who has HIV and is clinically eligible for treatment but cannot access it. For Katana, stigma is still a major stumbling block. "HIV should be demystified so that people feel comfortable to talk about it and get care," Katana stressed.
The end to AIDS is so far away for us," Milly Katana, a long-term HIV activist, told IRIN.
But Milly Katana, a prominent HIV activist, told IRIN that practically, enforcing a non-discriminatory policy towards health care in the face of this law is impossible. "What we know is that the community that is targeted instead is pushed more underground and any efforts to reach them with services is undermined," she said.

Along with four other senior managers, Milly Katana, who heads up the Uganda country office, will shortly begin the third module of the International Masters in Practicing Management (IMPM).The programme is designed to equip existing managers with advanced skills in leadership and organizational strategy.Having already completed modules at LUMS and McGill University in Montreal, Milly will fly out to the Indian Institute of Management in Bangalore later this month for the next phase of her learning.
Milly, who has been in post since May 2006, is responsible for the overall alignment of the Alliance's country office in Uganda focusing on strategy, partnership building, fundraising and resource mobilization in areas affected by HIV."I signed up to the IMPM because I found that on-the-job management training is not sufficient to prepare me for the challenge of growing our organization in Uganda," said 37-year-old Milly."I did an MBA in Uganda ten years ago, but that course also did not ready me for the combination of conundrums that I face in my job.As country manager I'm always thinking about strategy, finance, public image and so on, and I felt I needed something extra to help me overcome these challenges."
Milly started the IMPM in April 2007 and, after completing the 18-month diploma, plans to register for a Masters degree."I found the LUMS reflective module very empowering and a great platform to build on," she said."It's not always easy to take a step back and analyse the way an organization is running but by doing that you get the overall strategic positioning.This is the biggest learning so far.Also to have patience with individuals and let things take their course without interfering."
There are 27 students on the current IMPM cohort from a range of public, private and not-for-profit organizations."Working with participants from different countries and backgrounds, and sharing practical experiences, has really helped break down any perceived cultural barriers," Milly said.

In the past, she worked as a regional consultant for Bausch & Lomb, a global eye health pharmaceutical manufacturer, working to open up markets in English-speaking Africa.
