CEDOVIP worked with the state Minister for gender and UWOPA to ensure cabinet ministers sign the commitment cards to calling upon them to pass the national GBV policy and support budgets for the implementation of the DV Act, 2010.

The cards will be used during public / community events to hold ministers accountable to their commitments, hang at Parliament as a reminder to the ministers for their commitments.

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.
