TASO offers various opportunities to individuals and other organizations both within and outside of Uganda to contribute to the TASO mission and to learn and share the TASO experiences in the HIV and AIDS response. Such opportunities include; employment, volunteering, experiential attachment and placements, visitations, internship, training and metorship, and conducting research among others.

TASO has built a competent workforce of over 800 staff and volunteers, significantly contributing the the job market in the country. Whenever there are vacant positions in the organisations, adverts are placed in the mass media for all qualified individuals to compete favourably. TASO recruitment process is transparent and seeks to attact the right candidates to fill up the available positions. Successful candidates usually go through a rigorous orientation workshops on AIDS care and support. 

Fellowships
Over the years, TASO has offered practicum platform to fellows from various local and international institutions; School of Public Health-Makerere University, George Washington University, University of Melbourne, University of Notre Dame Avenue, University of Illinois, Wesleyan University CT, among others.  These partnerships have helped the students to benefit from TASO’s practical experience on one hand and TASO to get new ideas from the fellows and thereby improving its service delivery models and quality.

Activities related to the various opportunities are coordinated by the different TASO units; Human resource and Administration for employment and volunteer positions, TASO training centre for training and capacity building opportunities, Advocacy and Networking for visitations and TASO Institutional Review Committee(IRC) for research and related studies.
