Abstract [en]

The United Nations Development Program (UNDP) sees Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS) as a worldwide health problem and is therefore an important component in their strive to promote good health, comfort and sustainable development. The aim of this study is to explore how professionals within two organisations in Kampala, Uganda, implement and work to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) related to HIV/AIDS. Semi-structured interviews and documents has been collected and analysed with content analysis. Previous research shows that there are both possibilities and limitations related to the SDGs and that the context of different nations will affect how the SDGs are implemented and used. The System theoretical organisations theory has provided insight to understand how the context contributes to and affect the implementation process. The result shows that the SDGs is implemented through guidelines, which the originations and the professionals follows. These guidelines come from the government in which they have interpreted and adjusted the SDGs to their national context. The guidelines are seen by the participants as both helpful and as an obstacle in their work to prevent HIV/AIDS. Furthermore, the professionals experience difficulties achieving the goals and preventing new HIV infections do to, stigma, culture believes and values as well as lack of resources Therefore, there is a need for change on several levels within the society to further develop the work to prevent HIV/AIDS.
