Social, economic, and gender issues are increasingly recognized as significant factors in countries of east and southern Africa that underlie the HIV epidemic, keep maternal mortality and fertility rates high, and increase the likelihood that social economic welfare of such people will be compromised. (Krug et al, 2002; Mugawe & Powell, 2006 pg63). In this regard therefore, my study focused on the finding out numerous causes and common forms of gender based violence, examining the effects of gender based violence on socioeconomic welfare majorly at household level and to assess the measures that have been employed in reimbursement of gender based violence in families and to inaugurate the full picture for its sustained occurrence in families in Kisagazi parish Lwamata S/C. During the study, it was revealed that there are mainly five forms of GBV that affect the people of Kisagazi parish notably; physical intimate partner violence which happened at highest rate mostly in 2000s and back but has now drastically reduced majorly because people have obtained education thereby cutting down illiteracy levels and drastic reduction in GBV levels, sexual violence (SGBV), psychological violence, early child marriage enforcement and economic violence whereby women are not allowed to claim ownership of anything in a family. This impacted socio-economic welfare at household level in the following documented disciplines including hindrance to agricultural production which is the backbone of the economy, high costs of nursing injuries inflicted onto GBV victims, neglect of responsibilities, spread of HIV/AIDS, divorce and separation, retarding education of children and uncontrolled spending all these hinder socio-economic welfare at household level. However, the stakeholders had fought tooth and nail to curb down the scourge through employment of the measures such as sensitization of masses, strengthening institutions, using government bodies, educative programmes and role of religious institutions, starting up self-help projects, among others. The study concluded that GBV cases were prevalent in Kisagazi parish but had reduced drastically due to change in demographic characteristics of the citizens such as education, levels of income, stable governments, extension of police service to the parish among others had made cases reduce for the betterment of socio-economic welfare in Kisagazi parish and that these factors had positively affected socio-economic development at household level and therefore recommended the need for involvement of stakeholders at different levels and also to make comprehensive policies and incorporate couples to the formulation of policies since they affect both partners.
