Developing Guidelines for Providing SRH and GBV Services to YWWDs
SHS is planning to develop guidelines for providing SRH and GBV relevant services to young women with disabilities. Those guidelines will be distributed to different Government and civil society service provision organizations, and will be utilized to develop an awareness raising toolkit that will be used for awareness raising with the grassroots groups. Based on the two recent studies conducted by SHS on SRHR, there is lack of information for women with disability regarding SRH and the services related to them.
The studies also show that there is lack of services related to SRH as only 36% of the targeted organizations stated that they provide those services. Minimum standards for providing inclusive services to young women with disabilities by the SRH service providers need to be available and followed. Accordingly, a disability mainstreaming guiding principles of accessibility, affordability, adequacy, confidentiality, safety, respect and non-discrimination shall be developed and promoted to different stakeholders, mainly service provision organizations. The guideline shall also include specific sections for providing SRH and GBV relevant services and shall be built upon the “Eliminating Violence against Women” mainstreaming manual that was developed by SHS.
