Source: Human Rights Watch (HRW) Country: Uganda After 20 years of displacement and war, the people of northern Uganda are leaving camps set up for internally displaced people and building new lives.
The challenges are daunting for all displaced people trying to return to their original homes, settle more permanently in the camps, or relocate to new villages and towns and start fresh. Yet during this period of upheaval, government plans are failing to take into account the needs of women who acquired their disabilities due to the war or who already had disabilities before the war and may have disproportionately suffered the impact of conflict.
