CEDOVIP through a consultant continues to monitor the implementation of the DV Act through the judiciary on a quarterly basis in the two magisterial courts of Makindye and Nabweru and also help in strengthening CEDOVIP's engagements with the JLOS.

CEDOVIP intends to use the information to assess the successes, gaps in implementation of the Law and, the level of access to justice for survivors of domestic violence which will also inform future advocacy strategies.


Owing to the fact that the Anti pornography law infringes greatly on a number of human rights and constitutional freedoms including; the rights of women, freedom of expression, equality and freedom from discrimination among others, CEDOVIP in partnership with Women's Organization Network for Human Rights Advocacy( WONETHA) and Strategic Initiative for Women in the Horn of Africa (SIHA) formed d a loose coalition through Onyango and Co advocates to challenge the APL in the constitutional court.

Communities have a strong oral storytelling tradition. People like to learn about themselves and their lives through stories/drama skits. CEDOVIP works with over twelve community – based drama troupes to provoke inspire and motivate community members to balance power in their relationships and create violent free communities.
