The formal Justice System in Uganda is taking significant steps to enable survivors of GBV to access justice. On 20th June 2019, CEDOVIP and the Judicial Training Institute (JTI) held a high level validation meeting for the Gender-Based Violence Training Manual for Judicial Officers. Participants included Judicial Officers and other members of civil society, Development Partners and the Justice, Law, and Order sector to review the content of the training manual. The training manual is a product of an eight year-long partnership between CEDOVIP and JTI with support from UN Women.

CEDOVIP in partnership with the Child and Family Protection Department of the Uganda Police Force has developed a poster which provides information for survivors of domestic violence on how to access police services and what to expect in the process of reporting case.  The Poster which has been printed will be disseminated to across the Police regions beginning February 2019 to different police stations andcommunity hubs.

Domestic violence is a crime, but women are often afraid to seek justice out of fear of police procedures and concern for their safety. This poster aims at building knowledge of the survivors of what their rights  are in the process of accessing  justice at any police station, what the role of the police officer is in the case and where to seek support incase her case is mishandled or mistreated.
