Body (May 2020) The purpose of this paper is to examine current state interventions taken to mitigate the impacts of COVID-19 using social protection in Uganda in comparison to what is happening in Kenya and South Africa. This paper will also briefly examine the impact of legal framework in supporting the right social protection in COVID-19 responses. Since social protection is wide, the focus shall be on the non-contributory/tax-financed social protection schemes and programs as these relate with supporting rights of the vulnerable sections of the society as opposed to contributory schemes.
