As a contribution to the efforts to end violence against girls and women in Uganda, UN-Women in collaboration with ResilientAfrica Network (RAN) www.ranlab.org are supporting identification, incubation, development and scaling of various innovative solutions.

Birthed from this collaboration is the Centres4her application; a mobile application that links girls and women experiencing violence to the available support services and sexual reproductive services. 

An official statement Campus Bee has seen reveals that this app, in a bid to avoid stigma, hides the identity of the victims. “It is confidential and gives options on a Centre that best suits a particular incidence to address the reporting gap,” the statement reads.

The officials also contend that challenge resulting from violence incidents including disease episodes, disability and depression among others could be avoided if survivors accessed post violence services in time hence launch of Centres4Her.

The Centres4Her app has mapped most of the service providers including;

• Police for reporting and investigation 

• Medical Centres for access to treatment

• Psychosocial Counseling Centres  for documentation and counseling services

• Shelters to provide shelter to the survivors

• Toll-free help lines

• Legal services and

 • Ambulances

• 116 Call Button (National Gender Based Violence helpline)
