From Beijing to Paris: An assessment of Uganda’s commitments at Generation Equality Forum and the future of bodily autonomy and sexual and reproductive health and rights
|Date added||October 25, 2021|
Gender inequality is one of the most pressing global barriers to social and economic progress
and the fulfilment of human rights. It is deeply embedded in the social, cultural, religious and
other institutions, policies and legislation. Despite progress in some areas, nearly 40% of the
world’s girls and women live in countries failing completely on gender equality.
Uganda is signatory to a number of international and regional human rights instruments which
provide for gender equality and bodily autonomy and sexual and reproductive rights. During
the Generation Equality Framework (GEF) 2021, Government of Uganda committed to promote
women’s economic empowerment and eliminate all forms of Gender-Based Violence (GBV).
This study assessed Uganda GEF 2021 commitments in the area of bodily autonomy and sexual
and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), which is one of the six focus areas of the GEF 2021,
and its outcome, the Global Action Plan (GAP) 2021-2026.
