Gulu District in Northern Uganda has been at the center of the Northern Uganda armed conflict that lasted more than 18yrs and saw more than 35,000 children abducted, 2 million people displaced into IDP camps and thousands killed.

The study revealed that the population had suffered significant war traumatization including psychological, physical and sexual torture.
