Sex workers in Uganda: fighting violence and inequality

In Uganda, 42% of all pregnancies each year are unintended. The country's weak economy is exacerbated by high levels of gender inequality and poor access to jobs for women.

This results in further poverty for many sex workers and sometimes unplanned pregnancies or even death from unsafe abortion.
