A Deeper Silence: The Unheard Experiences of Women with Disabilities – Sexual and Reproductive Health and Violence against Women in Kiribati, Solomon Islands and Tonga

Author/s: United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA)

Women with disabilities continue to be neglected and marginalized. Their reproductive health concerns are often ignored, sometimes in a way that compounds discrimination toward them and their families. The publication provides research and recommendations to inform policies and programmes in order to increase access to sexual reproductive health services for persons with disabilities. The report advocates for meaningful engagement in design and monitoring for these policies and programmes can be done partnerships with organizations such as the Pacific Disability Forum and its country-based disabled persons organizations. The report findings are particularly urgent where they highlight the violence disabled women face.
