The Problem

Despite the above scores, the Sexual Reproductive Health (SRH) of persons with disabilities (blind and deaf) has been overlooked by both the disability community and those working on SRH. This leaves persons with disabilities among the most marginalized groups when it comes to SRH services. Yet they have the same needs for SRH services as everyone else. In fact, persons with disabilities may actually have greater needs for SRH education and care than persons without disabilities due to their increased vulnerability to abuse. the project seeks to reduce; 1. 85% of Women with disabilities in Buea district sensitized on family planning issues by the end of project 2. 89% of Youth with Disabilities and their families in Buea sensitized on the sexual reproductive health issues by end of project period 3. 90% of health workers in Buea sensitized on the sexual reproductive health needs and services for women and Youth with disabilities by end of project
