Abstract In 2009, over 2.6 million HIV infections occurred in the world where most transmission is heterosexual (UNAIDS, 2010). In the three centres of The AIDS Support Organization (TASO) Eastern region covering Soroti, Mbale and Tororo districts, 63.4 per cent of the organisation’s clients were reported by the management information system in 2009 to be having a stable sexual partner with a 93.5 per cent reported disclosure rate. However, only 20.8 per cent of clients seek HIV-related services as couples. This qualitative study aimed at finding out client and provider-related factors that hinder uptake of HIV and AIDS services for couples.
