Author/s: Megan McCloskey and Stephen Meyers

Young Persons with Disabilities: Global Study on Ending Gender-based Violence and Realizing Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights contains new qualitative, global research.

This study provides an analysis on the situation of young persons with disabilities concerning discrimination and gender-based violence, including the impact on their sexual and reproductive health and rights. It also provides an assessment of legal, policy and programming developments and specific good practices in service delivery as well as best-standard prevention and protection measures.

This includes an analysis of the Pacific Islands Forum’s Pacific Framework on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and Pacific Disability Forum’s Toolkit on Eliminating Violence against Women with Disabilities in Fiji.

Finally, policy and programming recommendations are provided to assist in greater promotion of the rights of young persons with disabilities, with a particular emphasis on preventing and responding to gender-based violence, and realizing sexual and reproductive health and rights.
