UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; the empowerment of women; and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security.
UN Women through financial support from the Government of Sweden and the EU-UN Spotlight Initiative to Eliminate Violence Against Women and Girls is launching this call for applicants to provide skills-based training for police offers and prosecutors in gender-responsive, child-friendly, survivor-centered, and trauma-informed investigations, prosecutions, and case management of Gender Based Violence (GBV) and Violence Against Children (VAC) cases. This includes the knowledge and skill necessary for effective prevention, investigation, prosecution, referral, data collection, analysis and reporting.
Harmful social norms, attitudes, behaviors and practices – particularly discriminatory gender norms and inequitable power relations between women and men – are a root cause of Violence Against Women and Harmful practices and limit Sexual Reproductive Health Rights in Uganda. The patriarchal system in Uganda upholds values, beliefs and practices that reinforce the privilege of men and their role in society. In this context, VAWG is accepted as an integral part of gender relations. The concept of male power within a household, with the husband considered the main decision-maker and the wife valued primarily for her reproductive role and tasks, remains a major driver of Intimate Partner Violence. According to the UDHS 2016, 49% of women and 41% of men believe a man is justified in beating his wife in certain circumstances. Of further concern, this view is held by 57% of females and 48% of males aged between 18-24 – demonstrating the prevalence and cyclical nature of negative gender norms in Uganda. Social norms around marriage and girls’ education remain strong drivers of VAWG/HP. Women tend to marry considerably earlier than men in Uganda (UDHS 2016), fueled in part by parental pressure for daughters to marry early in order to bring in bride wealth. The connection between Violence Against Women and the achievement of sustainable development goals has been recognized globally hinders the realization of a wide range of sustainable development goals especially goal 5 on gender equality and empowerment of Women and girls. Uganda has ratified international and regional instruments and conventions that provide for protection of women from violence however, implementation remains weak and abuse rampant.
UN Women in Uganda is at the forefront of scaling up the evidence-based SASA! Methodology designed by Raising Voices in Uganda has been RCT tested and shows 52% reduction in IPV against women in SASA! Communities. that follows the ecological model based on the understanding that violent attitudes, behaviors, norms and practices are shaped at individual, relationship, community and at organizational and societal levels in a mutually reinforcing way. SASA utilizes coordinated community-wide gender transformative, participatory community mobilization approaches to address the root causes of GBV by tackling the power imbalances between women, men, girls and boys and also demonstrates how understanding power and its effects can help us prevent violence against women and HIV infection. The SASA methodology recommends that a rapid assessment survey is conducted at the start of each phase to demonstrate change in knowledge attitudes and behaviors.
Therefore, UN Women is seeking the services of a consultant to carry out the SASA! Rapid Assessment Survey (RAS) in the 6 districts. The baseline rapid assessment survey will consist of quantitative and qualitative methods to assess knowledge, attitudes, skills and behaviors related to violence against women and girls harmful practices and SRHR.
