ABSTRACT

The study, ~n analysis on the protection of women against sexual abuse under the Domestic

Violence act of Uganda 2010, on the era of HIV/AIDS", was carried out to determine Act

3/201 0' s efficiency on offering the women, as one of the marginalized and most vulnerable

group a tangible solution to the problem, particularly in Makindye division.

Owing to historical, cultural/traditional, religious, legal among other factors responsible for the

unequal power relations within the family, violence against women in such a male dominated

society, IS hardly publicized, noticed and punished, thereby leaving its victims exposed to

personal sexual gratification of their attackers, whose actions seem to be condemned by the state

through its acts or emissions in convicting such impunity.

Sexual abuse in its different forms and intensity, just take over violence against women at the

hands of family members, it usually shrouded in secrecy, denial and is considered in "private

matter" not warranting state intervention. Though de facto of its victims' human rights to self

worth/dignity sexual and health integrity besides increased exposure to HIV I AIDs as a result of

such sexual abuse appears to have been addressed by the law, there are still many cases of

domestic violence against women reported in the media at the police and other law enforcement

agents in an attempt to obtain legal protection against their abusers!

Therefore, in such an environment where culture and religion are so much entrenched with stereo

typed notions of male domination of women in Makin dye Division and high HIV I AIDS in

section rate, this qualitative study involved various data collection methods including individual

and or group interviews; books, articles, newspapers, reports, electronic media etc as respective

primary and secondary sources of data.

consistent manual existing to retain the current form of this study. Verbatim quotations too supplement the findings of this study.
