The Honorable Yoweri Kaguta Museveni President, Republic of Uganda We, the undersigned physicians, scientists, clinicians and health educators, are writing to urge the government and people of Uganda to reject further consideration of a bill, entitled the Anti-Homosexuality Bill of , currently pending in the Parliament of the Republic of Uganda. We believe the provisions of this Bill would establish a framework for civil society that is counter to the fundamental principles of human rights and threaten the remarkable advances that Uganda has made in combating the AIDS epidemic. Enactment of this measure will undermine public health by further stigmatizing persons at risk of, or living with, HIV infection and compromising trust and confidentiality between patients and their health care providers. We believe in the inherent equality and dignity of all people, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.
