Uganda: Child Marriages Persist in Lango, Acholi, Despite Govt Intervention

Health workers and local leaders in Lango and Acholi sub-regions have expressed concern about the increasing number of child mothers despite various interventions by government and development partners. They attribute the rising number of child mothers to family breakdown and the loss of moral values caused by the two-decade rebellion of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) rebels.
