The Sexual and Reproductive Health of Women and Adolescent Girls with Disabilities report presents the results of the research on the experiences of women with disabilities in terms of sexual and reproductive rights which was carried out under the United Nations Partnership on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNPRPD). The aim of the research was to document the awareness and attitudes of women and girls with disabilities on sexual and reproductive health and rights, as well as practical experiences in exercising these rights in the health care system.

Project “Autonomy, voice, and participation of persons with disabilities in Serbia” supported by the United Nations Partnership on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNPRPD)has been in progress since May 2018.
