The study is about prostitution and the law in Uganda and the area of intervention is
located in Kabalagala Parish in Makindye Division in the suburban residential and
characteristically slum area. People living in this area are in condition of abject poverty
and consequently they have no possibility to afford the costs of basic needs, such as
shelter, education, healthcare and food.
Prostitution was established to arise from Media influences, lack of career guidance,
poverty, independence to work, work environment, survival, addiction and background of
the prostitute and effort to curb prostitution are failing due to abuse of law of by the
officers, ignoring measures that promote prostitution, but measures such as peer to peer
education, supervisory support and media campaigns are under way.
It is concluded that, legalization of prostitution will help in ensuring that the business is
conducted in safer way whereby the prostitutes would go through medical check-ups but
the client would not have passed through the same tests, that would imply the prostitute is
not safe either which implies that this approach is ineffective unless means to protect the
prostitute too, are considered.
It was recommended that, authorities engage social sciences experts to find out the real
causes of prostitution; a combination of programmes that expand income generating
opportunities; continuous training in needs analysis; behavioral change programmes;
slum development as well as frnther research and sensitization of law Enforcement
agencies/ brothel owners about commercial sexual exploitation
