Sexual offences are a daily occurrence within communities and these have largely become a public health and human rights concern not only for Uganda but also around the globe. The high prevalence of sexual offences has been consistently documented in the annual police crime reports. For instance the 2019 Annual Police Crime Report recorded 1,528 cases of rape while 13,613 defilement cases were reported in 2019.
