Advocacy for Women’s, Maternal and Reproductive Health Rights

We leverage the power of storytelling and partnerships to maximize synergy and use multimedia platforms to advocate for investing in strong health systems and access to affordable maternal health and reproductive health services. With Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Child and Adolescent health partners and coalitions in the country, we engage in budget analysis and alternative policy making. We work with Girls Not Brides Uganda Partnership, an alliance of 96 civil society organisations maximizing synergy in ending child marriage, to advocate for investing in preventing child marriage and teenage pregnancy, sexual and reproductive health rights, and ending sexual and gender-based violence and all forms of violence against girls and women.

Why this is important

Although Uganda has a relatively comprehensive legal and policy framework to address Violence against Women and Children (VAW/C), there are significant gaps in the implementation and enforcement. Access to affordable, quality maternal healthcare is still hard for the poor, and we still witness otherwise preventable maternal related deaths. While VAW/C remains high. One in four girls 15-19 years of age is either pregnant or had a baby. More than 22% of women aged 15-49 experienced sexual violence compared with 8 percent of men, while 51% of women experience physical violence (UDHS, 2016).
