Young Persons with Disabilities: Global Study on Ending Gender-Based Violence, and Realising Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights

The study seeks to contribute to the strengthening of state laws and policies that foster social inclusion and gender equality for the benefit of young persons with disabilities, especially young women and girls with disabilities; to eliminate discrimination against them, particularly with regard to access to and enjoyment of SRHR and GBV prevention and response services; and to recognise and promote their right to be active members of society with the acknowledged capacity to make decisions on issues affecting them. The study also seeks to identify areas in which data are missing or insufficient and in which additional research would be valuable.
