Violence against women and children are seen as persistence forms of the human rights violations globally. These pose a threat to the achievement of SDGs and Vision 2040 for Uganda.
In efforts to address this, European Union (EU) has partnered and funded UN agencies, government, Civil Society, Private Sector and other stakeholders, to implement the multiyear Spotlight Initiative to Eliminate Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG), including Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGVB) and Harmful Practices (HP). The Spotlight Initiative aims to address the prevalent problem of increased violence against women and girls and harmful practices. The programme has six pillars of i) Enhanced legislative and policy frame work;ii) Strengthened institutions; iii) Prevention and social norm change; iv) Quality survivor services and ending impunity for VAWG, including SGBV and HP; v)Improved data availability and capacities; and vi) Strengthened women’s movement and civil society engagement.
