Uganda hosts Africa’s largest refugee population - one and a quarter million, mostly South Sudanese.  Health workers warn that the refugees infected with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, are not being properly tracked for treatment. They say the problems include ignorance, stigma, and refugee mobility.  Halima Athumani reports from Uganda's Adjumani district.
