As the COVID-19 global pandemic continues to hit hard and disrupt the daily lives of women, men and children, governments are under immense pressure to curb further spread of the disease and offer a fast response to avert its devasting consequences to human life and the economy.

As the government of Uganda progressively rolls out preparedness, risk reduction and response measures, it’s imperative that critical attention is given to the different impacts COVID-19 like all other pandemics and disasters has on women and men.

As already noticed in Uganda, amidst the implementation of the COVID-19 response that includes scale down of government and nongovernment services, movement restrictions and lockdown of businesses, women have continued to shoulder the burden of ensuring the wellbeing and continuity of their families and society at large through working to provide maternal care, child care, elderly care and health care.

Greetings Partners and Friends of Center for Domestic Violence Prevention (CEDOVIP)

CEDOVIP joins in solidarity with the global and national community to manage and contain the spread of COVID-19. CEDOVIP recognises the importance that all staff and our partners take the initiative to stay safe and protect others. In light of the guidelines from the World Health Organisation (WHO), Government of Uganda, and following the State of National address by the President of Uganda on 17th March 2020, and 22nd March 2020, CEDOVIP is fully embracing the prevention measures in solidarity with the global community.

The alcohol that had been brewed to celebrate her transition into womanhood was instead used to mark her funeral. Twenty years later, we are still waiting for her to wake up. She slept in visible pain. Everyone watching her undergo the ritual saw her die in helpless pain. The saddest thing was that no one dared to help. The seemingly happy mood quickly switched to gloom; Darkness descended upon the village, leaving everyone grumbling; why had she died? Was it worth it? Could it have been avoided?’
