Positive State Practices Adopted to Advance the Rights of Young Persons with Disabilities to Access Sexual and Reproductive Health, and Prevent and Respond to Gender-Based Violence

Research Report

In partnership with the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and the International Solutions Group (ISG), a GRG team contributed to a critical global study on youth and disability. The study identified positive practices states have adopted to advance the rights of young persons with disabilities in two primary areas: (1) access to sexual and reproductive health rights and services and (2) prevention and response to gender-based violence. The GRG team produced in-depth research reports and summaries on state practices in Brazil, Israel and Pacific Island Countries and Territories, and drafted a subsection for the report on best practices in humanitarian settings. The team also conducted interviews with key stakeholders and produced interview memos for ISB clients.
