In Uganda, its common to bring women into households to help with chores such as cleaning, cooking and childcare. Yet many say that they have been coerced into undergoing screenings for HIV and sexually-transmitted infections. Advocates say the testing is a harbinger of discrimination and even sexual exploitation.


Five days of heavy fighting in South Sudan's capital, Juba, sent tens of thousands of people fleeing their homes. Some have tried to go south to Uganda, but that highway is considered incredibly dangerous. The few who have made it across the border tell of ambushes and checkpoints wracked by looting and violence.


At the Nyumanzi Transit Center in northern Uganda, refugees greet U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi with song and dance, as well as with tales of food shortages and poor living conditions.
