Makerere University launches online platform to address sexual harassment in Higher Education Institutions in Uganda

Brief: 

Makerere University has launched an online system to address sexual harassment in Higher Education Institutions in Uganda. The system codenamed “Kicking Sexual Harassment out of Higher Education Institutions (KISH) was launched by the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Barnabas Nawangwe on 7th October 2020. It was developed by members of staff from the School of Women and Gender Studies in collaboration with information technology experts from the College of Computing and Information Sciences, following a baseline survey conducted early this year to assess the status of sexual harassment at Makerere. The overall aim of the online platform (kish.mak.ac.ug) is to support the processing of sexual harassment cases in a confidential and safe space. Through the system, the victim is able to privately upload evidence against the accused and monitor progress of the investigations. The system also provides an online course to sensitize staff and students on the different forms of sexual harassment and the support mechanisms for victims.
