Through TASO, Noerine has pioneered and led the way in Uganda's response to the HIV/AIDs scourge for over 30 years. Noerine founded TASO after the untimely death of her husband, who himself was a physician. Noerine and her husband were the first couple in Uganda to come out publicly about thier HIV/AIDs status thereby drawing around them a support group of other couples who were facing the same predicament. Following the death of her husband, Noerine avowed to "do something" about this disease before what she expected to be her own coming death.
