Access for Everybody: Disability Inclusion in Abortion and Contraceptive Care – Guide

This guide provides strategies for improving disability inclusion in policy, service delivery, and community engagement interventions, which can be adapted to cater to the specific needs of each context. It is developed as a resource to improve access to abortion and contraceptive care for programme implementers and managers, technical advisors and trainers. The recommendations highlighted are based on the human rights model of disability that promotes the empowerment of people with disabilities through developing initiatives that are disability-specific as well as integrating disability inclusion in programmes. A core principle guiding the recommendations is that people with disabilities should actively and meaningfully participate through all stages of planning, implementing and evaluating interventions in abortion and contraceptive care.
