This study examined the HIV epidemiological evidence in Uganda and analysed the sociopolitical context, using a critical theoretical approach. We suggested that contrasting the biomedical and socio-political perspectives can be vital to the understanding of the success claimed by the government HIV/AIDS interventions. The two perspectives revealed the contribution and limitations of ''ABC'' and what is left unsaid in the reported results. ''ABC'' remains essential, however, the epidemiological surveillance is limited to document the HIV trends in the general population, while the socio-political context seems to expose individuals to HIV and limits the effectiveness of ''ABC''. To understand the HIV/AIDS outcomes is to comprehend the difference between the accompanying discourses and the realities about HIV transmission and the effectiveness of the interventions in the country.Increased resources and political capacities are necessary if the state is to integrate the biological and socio-political analyses that will result in more effective interventions.
