Ending violence against women and girls in Uganda

Pulse Lab Kampala

Project Description

The Uganda Spotlight Initiative seeks to capitalize on existing programmes and interventions addressing violence against women and girls (VAWG), harmful practices (HP), and sexual and reproductive health rights (SRHR) in Uganda.

Using the radio content analysis tool it developed, Pulse Lab Kampala created a real-time gender perceptions dashboard to unearth discussions and topics regarding sexual and gender-based violence across the country. 

Pulse Lab Kampala’s  automated speech recognition tool uses AI technology to pull recordings of radio conversations around particular themes and transcribe them. Once identified, the relevant snippets of information—in this case regarding violence against women and girls—are analysed and visualised using the dashboard to allow authorities to have access to more timely and granular information.
