As World AIDS Day is marked on Dec. 1, Uganda and many other African countries are continuing their battle against HIV and AIDS, and Ugandan street activists like 26-year-old Hood Katende are trying to use music and drama to stem a troubling resurgence of HIV, which now infects more than 500 young women between the ages of 15 and 24 each week, according to the Uganda AIDS Commission.
