Cost-Benefit Analysis of Cash Transfer Programs and Post Trauma Services for Economic Empowerment of Women in Uganda

In 2015, Isis-WICCE partnered with Tilburg University, Mbarara University and Makerere University and conducted research in the war affected districts of Kitgum, Lira, Soroti and Katakwi in northern Uganda on the impact of cash transfers on economic empowerment resilience. The study, found that women who benefitted from trauma treatment and counseling services were more resilient and demonstrated better agency than those that did not access this service. The study concluded that social protection initiatives in communities impacted by conflict must have more holistic support and specifically, access to mental care services alongside social protection support for better impact.
