Project Description
The development objective of the Strengthening Social Risk Management and Gender-Based Violence Prevention and Response Project for Uganda are to increase: (i) participation in Gender-Based Violence (GBV) prevention programs; and (ii) utilization of multi-sectoral response services for survivors of GBV in targeted districts. This project has three components. 1) The first component, Prevention of social risks and gender-based violence will strengthen the development, coordination and implementation of a set of comprehensive GBV prevention interventions within the broader context of social risk management. In particular, this component will focus on: (i) promoting behavior change and addressing social norms and values that may enable or condone GBV at community and household level as well as in the workplace; (ii) strengthening referral mechanisms and ensuring information on available services for GBV survivors is available and widely disseminated at community level and in the workplace (in prioritized sectors). This component has two sub-components, (a) Preventing Gender-Based Violence in the workplace in the broader context of social risk management; (b) GBV prevention and referral at community level in the context of social risk management; 2) The Second component, Gender-Based Violence Response in the context of social risk management will strengthen the responsiveness of front-line service providers: Health Sector, Uganda Police Force and the Directorate of Public Prosecution to cases of GBV and improve their ability to provide quality care to survivors. This component will: (i) strengthen national coordination systems, (ii) support the enhancement and adoption of comprehensive guidelines for referrals; (iii) the review and updating of Standard SOP for the Justice Law and Order Sector (JLOS) and; (iv) training curricula for Uganda Police Force.
