Abstract [en]

This research project investigates the architectural design of the physical facilities where two NGOs AIC and TASO provide HIV services in Uganda. The article discusses the multidimensional character of HIV care and support which demands architectural structures of high complexity and flexibility. Geographical location and spatial conduciveness for services and staff, as well as client needs are considerations which service givers must take into account. The provision of space proves to be a challenging endeavour because of changing services and growing client loads. AIC and TASO have met these challenges in non-conservative ways applying a number of spatial strategies.
