Human trafficking in Uganda: A community-based multi-faceted approach to prevention and victim identification.

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Addressing the issue of human trafficking requires broad based cooperation across a number of community based sectors. Psychologists are uniquely qualified to assist in a number of ways through research, activism and the provision of counseling and related services. This presentation will use work in Uganda as an example of intervention to both prevent trafficking and to enhance identification and support of survivors. The history of war and conflict in Uganda has significantly compromised the country’s infrastructure and human security. Extreme poverty associated with few employment opportunities, the vast number of children orphaned because of HIV/AIDS and the disproportionate number of individuals born with disabilities are some factors that create vulnerability to human trafficking in Uganda. This presentation will describe work being done in two different areas in Uganda; the Mukono District and its four wards and the Soroti area of northern Uganda.
