The Sexual and Gender-Based Violence (SGBV) Database

The Sexual and Gender-Based Violence (SGBV) Database

The SGBV database was launched in March 2015 with financial support of John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation. It is available at http://sgbv.ihrda.org and is a collection of national legislation and judgments pertaining to SGBV from various African countries, in English and French. Pilot countries on the database include Uganda, DRC and Kenya. The database is intended to facilitate access to SGBV resources for relevant actors and stakeholders, especially those in the promotion and protection of women’s rights.

The database was developed with the technical support of HURIDOCS Switzerland.
