ABSTRACT

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
