US AID: Addressing Gender-Based Violence and Environment
Gender-based violence continues to be an pervasive issue in Uganda. Through a global health education program with Child Family Health International in Uganda, we spent eight weeks as students of Dr. Geoffrey Anguyo, the Founder and Executive Director of the holistic-minded development organization Kigezi Healthcare Foundation. This partnership motivated and guided this research effort, which ended up in the creation of a US Aid Grant that was ultimately approved. This paper provides an in-depth analysis of gender-based violence in various settings, and the apparent need for policy aimed toward mitigating these issues.
