    ICF International completed the second part of a two-phase study in collaboration with Makerere University that provides estimates of the prevalence of commercial sexual exploitation of children (CSEC) in Kampala, Uganda. Both phases of the study used Respondent Driven Sampling (RDS) and in-person interviews. The objective of these studies was to create population-based measures of CSEC to explore the change in CSEC prevalence over time. A second objective was to understand the working conditions of the children involved in CSEC. Prior to the implementation of the first phase of this study, no prior studies had offered an estimate of the prevalence of CSEC in Uganda based on a probability sample, or details on the characteristics of CSEC in the country.
