In Uganda, where gender-based violence (GBV) prevalence rates are among the highest in the world, multisectoral policy and legal frameworks to prevent and mitigate the negative consequences of violence have been adopted. But policy does not always translate into action. To this end, HP+ conducted an assessment to identify GBV policies and guidelines in Uganda and examine how such policies are being implemented and monitored. The study team analyzed whether current policies address the family planning needs of GBV survivors and examined whether their implementation promotes access to family planning among women of reproductive age. The analysis was used to develop practical recommendations to strengthen implementation of GBV policies and improve service delivery to better meet the family planning needs of GBV survivors.
