Health Sector leadership and commitment to prevention of violence against children in Uganda

This project was funded by the Oak Foundation from 2017-2018 with the objective of fostering the commitment of the health sector to integrate prevention of violence against children and strengthen the capacity of health sector actors to advocate for greater visibility and prioritization of VAC in the health sector.

Through this project we have been able to engage with relevant officers in the Ministry of Health, made presentations about the need to make VAC visible in sector plans, and we have been invited to join the Gender Based Violence Technical Working Group of Ministry of Health. This platform provides an opportunity to better promote the VAC agenda
