With this study, the Overseas Development Institute (ODI) seeks to understand the multiple and overlapping reasons behind cross-generational relationships in Uganda in order to promote more comprehensive and effective responses to the issue.
Cross-generational sex and transactional sexual relations are of significant public concern in Uganda where 11.8% of girls across the country are affected. The phenomenon can be linked to immediate and life-long consequences for both girls and boys who are affected. This study looks closely at the extent to which income poverty relates to social pressures to commit or not commit a certain behavior, which is found to contribute to this particular violation of child rights.
