We Want Birth Control: Reproductive Health Findings in Northern Uganda – Full Report


The Women’s Refugee Commission (WRC) and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) conducted a reproductive health assessment among the conflict-affected populations of northern Uganda in February 2007. Northern Uganda had been embroiled in a civil war for almost 20 years at this point, resulting in the displacement of approximately 1.5 million people. The assessment team visited the districts of Kitgum and Pader and also visited a youth center and clinic in Gulu. In general, the findings revealed that although some basic services were in place, many were sorely lacking. View their findings in this report.
