Directory of Women’s Property and Inheritance Rights Organizations and Services Abstract:

This directory, compiled by MEASURE Evaluation in collaboration with the International Center for Research on Women, contains information on select organizations working at the intersection of HIV and women’s property and inheritance rights (WPIR) in Kenya and Uganda and was compiled to facilitate access to, communication with, and collaboration between programmatic organizations working on these issues.  Organizations included in this directory were initially identified via a systematic internet search and through references to programs in published reports, evaluations, and peer-reviewed and grey literature. Experts in WPIR and HIV in the USAID missions in Kenya and Uganda were also consulted for program recommendations. Inclusion criteria focused on programs operating in Kenya and/or Uganda, addressing both property rights and HIV, and having some level of data collection and/or program evaluation. A total of 43 programs were identified and were requested to complete a survey to provide more in-depth program information. Out of the 43 programs contacted, 11 completed the surveys, representing a 26 percent response rate. More extensive information on the programmatic and monitoring and evaluation efforts of these organizations can be found in the compendium entitled, Protecting the Land and Inheritance Rights of HIV-Affected Women in Kenya and Uganda; A Compendium of Current Programmatic and Monitoring and Evaluation Approaches.
