"I stay all week at school. I sometimes go home on weekends. When I arrived here, I was the youngest in the class. I immediately realized that everything would not be easy. Boys at school do not consider us as equals. Often they refuse to participate in compulsory work such as housework etc. Some boys ask us to wash their belongings because they consider that it is the role of women. There are also cases of sexual assault in our school. One time I saw a friend in my class crying and she explained to me how she had been touched by a boy in her class."

“ It expected school to be safer than at home but I quickly realized that I was mistaken.  I often have to refuse the advances of older boys who think that they can take advantage of me as I am woman.  If I refuse to do their school household chores I risk being beaten by some of them.  I dream of being a politician and promoting womens’ rights in Uganda but I realise that this may be difficult to achieve.“

"My father beats my mother when he drinks too much, sometimes when my mother is not at home, it is me that he beats.  Occasionally it goes further and he rapes me.  My mother is aware of what happens but she is unable to stop it.  She has found work so that she can pay for my schooling as my father doesn’t believe that women should be educated.  My mother gave me this pendant so that I would be reminded of her whilst I am at school.
I thought I would have a shelter at school, but here some boys also beat and insult us ... it is sometimes hard to be a woman in Uganda.“
In Uganda, it is reported that 78% of primary and 82% of secondary school students have experienced sexual abuse at school, 67% of which is perpetrated by male teachers.
According to the 2011 baseline survey conducted by ANPPCAN, corporal punishment is still at large in schools with 81% of school children still being beaten despite a directive from the government banning the practise. Corporal punishment has remained entrenched in society mostly because it is regarded as a socially acceptable form of discipline and therefore not punishment per se. Violence against children in general remains common practice because a number of children do not identify the disciplinary treatment they receive as violence and in cases where the abuse is recognised they are mostly too afraid to report it as the people they would naturally report to; parents and teachers, are often the very perpetrators of the practise.

In 2015, an estimated 1.5 million (7.1% of the adult population of Uganda aged 15-49) people were living with HIV, and an estimated 28,000 died of AIDS-related illnesses.
The number of new HIV infections in Uganda increased by 21% between 2005 and 2013. However, the rate of new infections has decreased in recent years falling from 140,000 in 2013 to 83,000 in 2015.  The number of AIDS-related deaths decreased by an estimated 19% over the same period.
Robust treatment and prevention initiatives have been implemented in recent years, leading to improved conditions for people living with HIV. Due to the implementation of antiretroviral treatment throughout the country there has been a gradual increase in the number of people living with HIV receiving treatment. In 2013, Uganda reached a tipping point whereby the number of new infections per year was less than the number of people beginning to receive antiretroviral treatment.
However, as of 2015 around 40% of adults living with HIV were still not receiving treatment. Persistent disparities remain around who is accessing treatment and many people living with HIV experience stigma and discrimination.
