The report gives insight into the existing EAC normative and institutional framework on gender equality and women’s rights and provides an analysis of the national legal and policy frameworks of the six EAC Members states regarding gender-based violence against women, harmful practices, reproductive rights and sexual and reproductive Health, HIV and AIDS. The report presents promising reforms but also gaps and contestations in these areas and hopes to thereby inform and strengthen the work of diverse organisations fighting to make women’s and girls’ rights a reality.
