The Ugandan government is likely to pass a new anti-homosexuality bill currently before Parliament. The bill includes a life sentence for anyone convicted of having gay sex, with an option of the death penalty for "aggravated homosexuality". The bill further bans the "promotion of homosexuality", and proposes a 3-year prison term for anyone failing to report homosexuals to the police. If the bill is passed, what is its potential impact on civil society, development and sexual health in Uganda?
