About the research group
Social protection interventions can contribute to reduction in vulnerability and economic empowerment of households and individuals. Due to this, the Government of Uganda has sought to expand coverage of social protection through national legislation. Although psychosocial support is important in economic empowerment of people affected by violent conflict, previous interventions, such as cash transfers, have not addressed the psychosocial effects experienced by survivors of violent conflict, especially in Northern Uganda. This research investigates the cost effectiveness of interventions (cash transfers, trauma-related health and psychosocial support, and support through radio and social media) initiated to strengthen the potential and capacity of female survivors of violence in Uganda.
