The Government of Uganda led the implementation of the Violence Against Children and Youth Survey (VACS) in 2015, and launched the VACS report in 2018.

The Ministry of Gender, Labour, and Social Development coordinated the implementation of the VACS with support from PEPFAR, UNICEF, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and other partners.

Uganda has developed its National Child Policy 2020, and partners are currently working to prevent and respond to violence through advocacy and public awareness efforts.
