Gender based violence continues to be a major national scourge.It takes many diverse forms, both offline and online, including domestic violence, sexual violence, early marriages, trafficking in persons. Data on both police-reported violent crimes and national demographic health surveys report that women and girls represent the majority of the victims.

Uganda is not unique. Gender based violence happens in every single country and at every level of society. Did you know that one in three women in Uganda have, or will, experience Gender-Based Violence (GBV) in their lifetime? Most cases of violence occur in our homes. Few are the perpetrators challenged in court, even if the consequences will be felt for a lifetime.

CEDOVIP in partnership with the Human Rights Center at the Berkeley Law School, University of California, United States of America with support from UN Women and Embassy of Sweden have embarked on the process developing a handbook on investigation, prosecution and adjudication of sexual and Gender based violence in both development and humanitarian settings.
