    Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC) thrives when perpetrators are not held to account. In Kenya and Uganda, this lack of accountability can occur when criminal justice actors don’t have adequate technical capacity or resources. At the same time, survivors of CSEC are extremely vulnerable to being re-trafficked. Reintegration programs must be carefully planned and tailored to the needs of each survivor so that they receive the necessary support to physically and mentally recover from their trauma and the resources, tools, and knowledge necessary for successful social and economic reintegration. This brief provides an overview of programs and research funded by the Global Fund to End Modern Slavery (GFEMS) from November 2020 through October 2022.
