In Uganda 66% of women are sexually abused in their life time. Defilement and child sacrifice are becoming the order of the day. Domestic violence and gender inequalities are prevalent in each home,school,community,office and every where. All these are contributing/worsening the HIV/AIDS pandemic.

Unfortunately the systems in Uganda dont adequately address the above concerns. For example health care workers and police are not edequately trained to handle victims of gender based violence with out further stigmatising them.. In case of say rape or defilement, the victims rush to police before seeking medical attn and miss services like emergence contraception and Post exposure prophylaxis for HIV.

The communities too are not sensitized about the above. Survivors consquently get medical and psychological complications inevitably.

I pray for God's help to the victims.
